The Advent Journal readings posted December first through the 24th are  your invitation to spend a few moments each day thinking about Advent.  Each entry is designed to heighten the reader’s anticipation of Christmas. Whether enjoyed over morning coffee on your own, or savored around the dinner table with family or friends, time spent in God’s word and reflecting on what it means in our lives is always rewarding.  You might think of it as an invitation to a feast ~ a feast fashioned just for you by the congregation of Westminster Presbyterian Church.

The best journals are records of a deeply personal journey. You may wish to keep your own journal of entries or add comments here. Our hope is that this exercise will sweeten your journey toward Christmas. Sprinkled throughout this journey you’ll discover opportunities to create your own journal entries. To request your own free copy of the WPC Advent Journal please contact the church office 360.748.0091 or email

Each of us in some fashion is involved in waiting during this Advent season. May this Advent Journaling experience aid each of us in our work of waiting, longing, and praying for the coming of Jesus this Christmas.

We are glad you’re here, welcome to this journey of hope, love, joy, and peace.
