Participants using these reflection guides will examine the appropriate Sunday’s Scripture quotes that relate to specific sacred Earth concerns on a three-year rotation: Light and Energy; Advent/Incarnation in the New Universe Story; Peace, both personal and global.


These topics are placed within the Universe Story and awareness that the Mystery we call God lives and acts within us and all creation. Appropriate interconnections and personal responses are explored.  Meetings include silence, prayer, input, discussion, and action suggestions.

Material is frequently updated.  Duplicate copies after the “complete” notice is added.

available in English, Spanish, and French

2014: Advent in the New Universe Story is a four-session resource for those interested in deepening their understanding of the Christmas/ Incarnation reality in the context of the new creation story. The Incarnation is a Mystery that a lifetime of contemplation would not exhaust, and yet we are continually called to explore this Mystery, and specifically during Advent. These reflections will facilitate that exploration. Useful for individuals but designed for groups, the weeks’ topics include the following:

New Consciousness, New Christian Understanding;
The Cosmos Prepares for New Life;
Evolving Understanding of Humanity’s Place in Creation; and
Incarnation Revisited.

  1. These look like great resources for Advent. I am interested in them and for starters the 2013 In Praise of LIght. Thanks for sharing


  2. Thank you, Terri! These materals are TREASURES! I plan to use the Spanish version when it is my turn for Community Prayer! Gratefully, Ann-Joyce, shcj


  3. Love the site. Any way to get a print friendly version of Winter Solstice Ritual? Used your Advent reflections with a prayer group we recently formed at our Continued Care Retirement Community, which printed easily. We need to make 12 copies, & would use a tremendous amount of ink & more paper than is necessary. There probably is a way to do this, but I haven’t figured it out.
