Goodness & Light

Where do you see goodness and light breaking into the world this Advent?



Read daily reflections from the book, Goodness and Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas, written by Oscar Romero, Mary Oliver, Richard Rohr, Pope Francis, and others.


Look for "goodness and light" breaking into the world around you and share your photos using #goodnessandlight. Follow St. Paul’s on Instagram and Facebook for daily posts.



Gather with your circles to talk about the goodness and light in our world. As one option, Randy Zercher is leading a group on Tuesdays in Advent at 7 pm at the church.                . 


The daily devotional we are following, Goodness and Light, is bursting with both nostalgia and longing. Journey with us in these precious weeks of Advent as we explore these readings and talk with each other about how we see light breaking into our community. You can find a 10-15 minute podcast here every Wednesday in Advent. Each week we will cover the readings since the last podcast.
