Our series, Draw Near, invites us into prayer of expectant waiting this Advent season: “Draw near” is a prayer for God to draw closer to us and to the spaces in the world that are broken. “Draw near” is an affirmation that God has drawn near by taking on flesh and experiencing what it is to be human. “Draw near” is a charge for us to draw near to God by leaning into wonder, justice, truth, and one another.
