  • 42:29 – Main Topic (The Season of Advent)

On episode THIRTY-FIVE of Let the Bird Fly! the guys discuss the first season in the church year: Advent. Without Ben and without a guest Mike, Wade, and Peter somehow find a way to talk for well over an hour about the season of Advent (well, they do take some time out for the Free-for-All, I suppose). The discussion touches on the history and practices of the church year in general, but always with a focus on the first season of the church year. Mike mentions the O Antiphons, which he plans to write short devotions on during this Advent season. (Check back on LetTheBirdFly.com mid-December, if you’re interested. Or better yet, sign-up for one of our email lists and we’ll email you when they are posted.) Mike also mentioned the devotions produced by St. John’s Lutheran Church in Wood Lake, MN. If you are interested, you can find the Daily Devotions here and the Family Devotions here. We hope that you enjoy the discussion. If it sparks any thoughts or questions, please let us know.
