A daily e-mail advent calendar countdown to Christmas, Saturday November 26 to Monday December 26, 2022. Similar to the Prayer Bench Stroll for the Soul, this resource is a daily e-mail in your inbox to lift your spirits and help prepare for the birth of the Christ child.

Each daily email will contain - a pinch of the spice for the day; a couple of sentences describing the spice and how it is and has been used to celebrate Christmas in different dishes, cultures, ages, and countries.

A pinch from the Bible – One or two sentences from the Christmas story in the Bible. We focus on the books of John, Luke
and some lines from Isaiah and Micah.
A pinch of reflection – A short paragraph reflecting on our interaction with the Christmas story in our own lives today.
A pinch of prayer – A daily prayer exercise, engaging our senses with the spice and responding to God.
A handful of spicy facts – A few brief facts about the daily spice including origins and history and anything quirky or curious we’ve discovered along our writing journey.

With our theme this year of A Pinch of Spice, we will provide additional daily content on our Facebook page. 

There will be a recipe or craft idea based on the daily spice.
