Editor’s note: During Advent, Bread for the World is sharing meditations written by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist – a monastic community of The Episcopal Church & The Anglican Church of Canada.
Each day, Bread will post a picture, meditation, and word of the day. Bread members are encouraged to participate and help create the Global Advent Calendar via social media. On Twitter and Instagram, tag your image/prayer #adventword plus the tag for the day. On Facebook go to the AdventWord Page and write on page using #adventword and the tag for the day.
Word of the Day: Mend
Hashtag of the Day: #AdventWord #Mend
Meditation: Christianity is really all about mending. That is what redemption means: mending something which is broken. Every Christian is called to share with God in mending that which is broken: mending our relationship with God, with one another, and mending the torn canvas of God’s broken world.
