Anglicans worldwide and all Christians are being invited to observe Advent in a fun and prayerful way through a global online Advent Calendar called 'AdventWord'.
The season of Advent, from November 29 to December 24, is when Christians observe a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas.
'AdventWord' invites Christians to sign up to receive a daily meditation and respond by posting a picture on Instagram and other social media. The pictures combine to create the Advent Calendar in real time.
'AdventWord' will be launched at 5am New Zealand time on 29 November 2016 and be managed for the Anglican Communion by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist and Lady Doak College in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.
