Incarnation: An Advent And Christmas Responsive Reading

Here is a sample from our Advent/Christmas responsive reading for worshipping communities, called Incarnation.

The full version, and fully designed PDF can be purchased here for printing (small fee), but this is a sample below.

Hope my friends don’t mind if I ask for the price of a bagel and coffee for it. It’s an artist’s time and energy thing, and I have teenagers to raise. If you really can’t afford the $5, just let me know and I’ll email you one.

INCARNATION: A Christmas Reading
by Dan Wilt, M.Min.

Celebrant: The fire of heaven has taken on flesh.
Community: Living God, You are the Wonderful Counselor.

Celebrant: The voice of stars and suns is now audible to our ears.
Community: Living God, You are the Mighty God.

Celebrant: The love that binds all the cosmos has revealed Himself.
Community: Living God, You are the Everlasting Father.


It goes on from here to invite the whole community into engagement with the God who intervenes in a world He is righting. Hope it can serve your community this Advent and Christmas.

Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
