Partners in Faith have just published a new series of four leaflets written by Gemma McKenna called 'Making Space for Love' for Advent 2013. The leaflets are designed with small groups in mind and are very easy to use. They are ideal for groups who would like to meet on a few occasions before Christmas and explore some of the richness of the Christmas story. The reflection questions on the Gospel text included in the leaflets help tap into our own experience of this joyful season.

 

The leaflets are downloadable in PDF format below:

 

First Sunday of Advent

Second Sunday of Advent

Third Sunday of Advent

Fourth Sunday of Advent

 

A series of Gospel Reflections for Small Groups on Sunday Readings for Lent 2013 prepared by Gemma McKenna has just been published by Partners in Faith.

 

These five sessions, prepared with small groups in mind, use language close to ordinary life. The reflections attempt to link the gospel text with people's experience and stimulate discussion. The group leader can decide to use all or some of the questions. The background notes are there for the group leader to read or integrate into the sessions. They are not meant to serve as a homily! Thanks are due to the Fig Tree Gospel Group, Fatima Mansions always ready to try out the sessions and adapt themes.

1. First Sunday of Lent.

2. Second Sunday of Lent.

3. Third Sunday of Lent.

4. Fourth Sunday of Lent.

5. Fifth Sunday of Lent.

 

This year Partners in Faith won't be publishing Advent reflections but in its place we are happy to recommend "Prayer Reflection for Advent 2112" from VIVAT International Ireland. Vivat is an organization which lobbies in favour of the poor, the marginalized and for the protection of creation at the United Nations. The publication which you can download below is ideal for small groups meeting on a regular basis throughout the season of Advent. The series of reflections draw connections between the bible passages of Advent and the life experience  of poor and marginalised groups in our world. Connections which have become easier to make in an austerity racked Ireland.
