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: Rely
Hashtag of the Day: #AdventWord #Rely
Meditation: When we are inconvenienced, we have to rely on God. When we have to rely on God, the impossible becomes possible, and we find that we are able to do and achieve that which we never could do or achieve on our own power. We have to have God’s help.
