As I mentioned in my previous post, I am celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany with my students on Friday the 6th.
Please feel free to download and share today’s Christmas Celebration Journal:
In a way similar to the journals I created for my students to use during Advent, I’ll be creating and posting Christmas Celebration Journals for my students to use in class during the remaining days of the Christmas season.
After our class opening prayer, I dim the lights, put on quiet music and walk my students through a brief, prayerful, centering activity. I continue to play the music and invite them to reflect on these journal pages (what they write is for them only) and/or to gaze at the art in prayerful contemplation.
And I’ll try to use both traditional and contemporary art:
Please download and share this journal page which I’m inviting my Sophomores to use during our Advent prayer time. Rather than write, they may also ponder and gaze at the relevant art on the slides.
And, as this is my last Advent Journal before we have our midterms and Christmas Break, enjoy this extra art:
May you and yours have a blessed and joy-filled Christmas!
As I mentioned last Monday, the Spirituality Committee at my school has commissioned me to create a short video meditation for each Monday of Advent. It’s my pleasure to share this video for you to personally use or to share with others:
