Christmas Challenge Day **3**

Our friend Bette Dickinson has offered this painting, entitled Making Room For Preparation. Take a moment to look into it. Let it look into you. If you have time over the day, work through the questions.

What does this artwork say to you? 

How do you feel as you look at it? 

What is something different that you hadn’t considered before?

What might God be saying as you contemplate?

'Prepare the Way' by Bette Dickinson is painted with liquid acrylic and oil on clayboard. This painting is a depiction of Zechariah and Elizabeth holding John the Baptist. Zechariah proclaims John’s destiny in Luke 1:76-77 (NIV) as “a prophet of the Most High for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins…”

This painting will be published in Bette Dickinson’s upcoming book called, Making Room in Advent: 25 Devotions for a Season of Wonder with InterVarsity Press (Fall 2022). The book will include original paintings and devotional readings in Luke 1-2. View or purchase prints of the Advent paintings here.
Day 3, Tuesday December 7th  

This is a trifecta!! 3 days in a row of daily prayer, scripture and connection.
You better watch out—this could become a habit! ;-)

Daily prayer here:

YouVersion reading plan (with friends) here (you should be on day 2 of the first week… but hey, maybe you started it late… that’s ok… just try to do it together with some friends).
Pray for your hub (what we call a small group, 2-6 people) OR pray for a hub to join you. :-)

Do you have space create a hub? Text 2-3 people and ask them to join you on the advent journey.

Sometimes people struggle with this part of the challenge… and it’s really so important. So, here is a little guide to help you create a hub.
