Mennonite Church USA Mennonite Church USA

“Restoration is Near!” is the theme of Mennonite Church USA’s Advent at Home 2022 worship guide.

Using the theme developed for Leader magazine, the guide offers weekly and daily Scriptures, worship rituals, prayers, activities and background information for individuals and households of all ages.

Talashia Keim Yoder of Goshen, Ind., wrote the curriculum. She is pastor for Christian formation at College Mennonite Church in Goshen, theater director at Bethany Christian Schools and content writer for Building Faith, a website ministry of the Mennonite Early Childhood Network.

Artist Erin Ramer of Parnell, Iowa, designed the guide. She is a freelance graphic designer and manages her local Mennonite Central Committee thrift store, Crowded Closet, in Iowa City. MEA executive director Michael Danner served as co-editor along with MEA communications coordinator Jolene VonGunten.

“In a time when the world often seems adrift and apart from the Good News of Jesus, we hope this year’s theme will resonate with many who are longing for healing and restoration,” Danner said.
