Choose an Advent hymn (or two). [In Evangelical Lutheran Worship, Advent hymns are found from 239 through 267.] Reflect on one line (or one verse) each week, journaling and praying with what its words mean in your life journey. How do the words deepen your relationship with God during this time? What do they say about how you might better become a Christ-bearer to the world?
