About #getanupperroom

We’re a group of 8 people, mostly of the Methodist and Presbyterian persuasion–some of ordained, some of us not–who decided one day to make an online support community out of ourselves.

We called ourselves unicorn friends, and we got a room on Facebook.

We come to an understanding of discipleship in many ways, and we all don’t agree on everything out there, but we’re pretty good at supporting each other in our calling.

And that’s what makes being roomies pretty fun. Here is our stab at an Advent devotional for 2012.

We wish you peace in your Advent journey. May your eyes be widened.
