Appreciating Advent

Gardner-Webb Presents 2017 Advent Devotional Book

Gardner-Webb University is proud to present the 2017 Advent Devotional as a guide for reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ and focusing on the holy blessings of the Christmas season.

This year’s daily Advent readings are available as a traditional printed booklet and online in digital format.

Throughout the devotional, the University’s students, faculty and staff members offer perspectives on the Advent season and appreciation of a journey throughout the year. Each day’s entry provides a personal reflection by a Gardner-Webb writer and includes suggested scriptures for further study.

“Our intent is a call to all Christ followers to place priority upon the full scope of the Advent season that involves anticipation, journey, struggle, lament, hope and fulfillment,” shared Dr. Danny West, GWU Professor of Preaching and Pastoral Studies and director of the Doctor of Ministry program and Ministry Leadership Development at Gardner-Webb. “We want this work to be a blessing to all who walk the Advent journey with us.”

Daily devotions in a digital copy of the Advent book are available here
