This Advent Season, First United Church’s Spiritual Care Team has put together a duo of resources: an Advent Calendar, and companion Advent & Christmas Candle Lighting Liturgy.

The pair is meant to aid participation in the Season through through the theme of justice—specifically to begin the work of Call for Justice 18.17 from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
“The Advent Calendar walks us through the beginning steps of learning, unlearning, and relearning about Two- Spirit, Indigiqueer, and gender-diverse Indigenous folx’s experiences, systemic oppression, colonization, and radical change,” says First United’s Indigenous Spiritual Care Chaplain Lauren Sanders (Prairie Band Potawatomi and Kickapoo), who created the calendar.
