BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. — Gardner-Webb University is proud to present the 2014 Advent Devotional. This year’s devotional is available as a traditional written book, and for the first time the seasonal guide can also be found online in audio format via the SoundCloud page.

The University offers the Advent devotional to the community each year as a guide for reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ and focusing on the holy blessings of the Christmas season.

“No season of the Christian life approaches such a holy topic as well as the liturgical season of Advent,” Danny West, executive director of GWU’s Doctor of Ministry Program and professor of preaching and pastoral studies, offers in the devotional’s introduction. “While Advent leads us to the light, don’t dare forget the dark places that got us there. The reflections contained within the pages of this guide bear witness to that reality.”

Through this year’s devotions, GWU students, faculty and staff members offer perspectives on the Advent season and appreciation of a journey throughout the year. Each day’s entry provides a personal reflection by a Gardner-Webb writer and suggested scriptures for further study.

Daily devotions in a digital copy of the Advent book are available here.

Audio readings of each day’s devotion can be found via and SoundCloud.
