Calling For Ad+Vents

Published December 6, 2007

As the season of Advent continues, The Georgia Bulletin is recreating its seasonal response to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s “Vent” for readers with its own “Ad(+)Vent.”

For those not familiar with the “Vent,” it is a column in the AJC’s Metro section that allows readers to voice their opinions or express their displeasure on just about any topic. It’s done in a thought-provoking, yet entertaining manner.

Likewise, the Georgia Bulletin’s Ad(+)Vent will be your words. Each one should contain positive, uplifting words that speak to your faith, God’s goodness and mercy, personal testimonies, something good about your parish, a ministry, etc. It still has to be brief—two to three lines maximum. Your comments can be in the form of a narrative or question, or both. They can also be humorous.

Let’s prepare the way of the Lord with words that make us smile, reflect and sustain us in this period of waiting.


Fax your Ad(+)Vents to the attention of Michael Alexander: (404) 877-5505 or e-mail them to
