The second one was created by the Society of St. John the Evangelist, better known as the SSJE Brothers (or in the UK the Cowley Brothers/Fathers). Theirs is #AdventWord. I expect it will have more users because the Anglican Communion News Service picked it up.
Global Advent Calendar - pray with your phone camera
At first, having heard of both in passing, I thought it was the same thing. Same idea, yes; same words for the day, no. So which to choose?
I finally decided to do both. Am I crazy? Perhaps. But I do meditate well with a camera, actually. (I really need to do a blog post about that, or at least link to the books I've recently obtained to supplement my own experience.)
So here is the cheat sheet for both, lined up, in case anyone else would like to do both as well.
I'm noticing that the Young Adult/Youth/Lifelong Formation group has chosen a set of words that seem much more traditionally Adventlike to me.
It will be interesting to see what sort of meditation grows from the combination of the two words each day.
