Advent Resource: Hope, peace, joy and love

This Advent, we’ve asked four specially selected writers and theologians to connect themes of Advent to PWRDF areas of work:

Laurel, John, Marion and Mary Jo delve into the scriptural readings for Advent and connect them to the weekly theme of Advent, and the work of PWRDF. Peace, Love, Joy & Hope will be available for download by November 28, 2019, or subscribe to receive a reflection in your inbox every day of Advent until Christmas morning.

Advent Lives

This resource for children teaches the Christmas story through the animals that help contributed to the lives of our partners in our All Mothers and Children Count program, many of which are available in our World of Gifts guide. Cows, goats, sheep, even guinea fowl all play a role in this resource. Children will learn about the importance of PWRDF’s livestock program to food security in Mozambique, Tanzania and Rwanda. This resource can be used in Sunday Schools, Youth Groups or at home, in whole or in part. Includes stories, candle lighting prayers, activities and crafts. Flip through the resource above, and download by clicking the download arrow in the top left corner of the box or download here.
