In 2017, Words for Waiting began as a local-ish effort by campus ministers in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee. In 2018 the national UKirk Ministries network and the Presbyterian Mission Agency‘s Office of Christian Formation joined in, and this partnership is still going strong.

Here you’ll find daily reflections for the seasons of Advent and Christmas, created by ministers and college students connected to Presbyterian-supported campus ministries (with some other Church neighbors sprinkled in). They offer paragraphs, images, poetry, and prayer, to illuminate God’s presence with us and the ways we might respond to it. Check back each day beginning November 27, or subscribe to get emails each morning of the season. If you’d rather have a hard copy of the whole thing, a link to this year’s PDF will be available soon, in the Print box to the right (or below if you’re reading this on your phone).
