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: Trust
Hashtag of the Day: #AdventWord #Trust
Meditation: God’s love, like any love, involves real trust. And in relationships, trust requires mutuality. Sometimes it may require a part of myself that I don’t necessarily want others to see. This same vulnerability, intimacy, and mutuality should characterize our love for and trust in God.
