Voices from the Wilderness: An Advent Devotional

LGBTQ students, alumni and friends of the Wesley Foundation at UVA are collaborating to provide a collection of daily devotions to help all persons—gay or straight, conservative or progressive, and everything in between—nurture and grow their faith. Allow this Advent season to bring Light into the darkness as these silenced voices offer insight and understanding of our shared journeys of faith.

We are pleased to amplify these voices and to offer the devotional to you for a small donation to support the mission and ministry of the Wesley Foundation at UVA.  Perhaps you want to share this with a small group or Sunday school class in your church?  We encourage that! 

Suggested minimum donation per download/copy:
1 download: $10 minimum donation
5-10 downloads: $20 minimum donation 
11-50 downloads: $35 minimum donation
