An Advent Devotional from Behind Bars
Rev. Riley Pickett

Throughout history, prophets have peeled away the veneer of the ordinary and pointed humanity towards a more true and beautiful vision of creation, inspired by God. The sacred story of Advent is teeming with unlikely prophets and prophecies that paint us pictures of a new and subversive reality to which we are called to both hope for and work towards. For centuries the prophets of ancient Israel spoke of a world where the wolf shall lie down with the lamb, and all shall be led by a little child. In the season of Advent, this upside-down vision breaks through.
As prophecy becomes flesh, something radical shifts. What is breaking forth in our world – or in your life – even here and now, today? For what are we waiting, and where is God already showing up? The members of Hagar’s Community Church (HCC) – a church inside of the Washington Corrections Center for Women – know something about waiting and imagining a different way. In this collection of art, devotionals, poetry, and prayers, the members of HCC lead the way: these modern-day, unlikely prophets speak from their experience and offer a new vision. May we take heed.
