2022 Advent Calendar

Every Advent, All Saints' team of writers, WordWorkers, creates a virtual "Advent Calendar."  Each day from the first Sunday of Advent through Christmas Day features a unique piece of original writing. The pieces range across scriptural devotion, Christmas memories, meditations, seasonal poetry, and extended fiction. You can easily explore the writings, or you can simply read them in the order they are posted.

If you are interested in becoming part of WordWorkers or if you have any feedback about this project, please contact us.
