This is the first of a series of podcasts produced by Ryan Marsh of Church of the Beloved, that will be posted at the beginning of each week of Advent.

Todays podcast focuses on the coming of Christ as an infant. This is the first coming that Advent invites us to experience. The remembrance of Jesus coming in the flesh as an infant. It captivates our hearts yet makes few, if any demands on our souls. For many the story is nothing more than a children’s story, a soothing tale that is little more than an add on to the secular celebration of consumption and overindulgence.

As you await the coming of Christ what are you hoping for? Join us each day this week for additional reflections, liturgies and prayers on our theme.

And don’t forget our other Mustard Seed resources including these beautiful prayer cards that we have put together. Your purchase of these resources is one way to help support the Godspace blog and the ministry of Mustard Seed Associates.

We hope that you will also join us next week for our second podcast featuring:
