Keeping Watch Under Pandemic Skies provides an opportunity to claim sacred space on the grounds surrounding the church building and unfolds from the Wednesday before Advent begins (November 25) through Epiphany Day (January 6); includes a reading, reflection, prayer, song and an action for meditation and prayer.
Preorder This Here Flesh (Penguin; 02.22.22) by November 28th and receive an invitation to a four-part series intentional virtual space: Sunday evenings during Advent, gather by candlelight for a brief reflection, practice breathing and silence, and learn to wait together through the dark.
Additional liturgical elements following four themes - The Wait, The Silence, The Body, and The Dark - will be shared throughout the season via Patreon. Discover written content and liturgies by becoming a Black Liturgies patron here.
