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: Promise
Hashtag of the Day: #AdventWord #Promise
Meditation: God gives us the responsibility of doing something ourselves about those faithless fears and worldly anxieties that are holding us back. We don’t have to do this alone. We have God’s promise of holding our hand and of helping us.
