We will be offering a book study this Advent at two different times. Small groups can be an incredible way to grow in your faith and what better time to give that a try than during the 4-week season of preparation before Christmas that we call Advent.
The study book we have selected this year is Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent. In this book, author Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical stories surrounding the birth of Jesus. Join her as she traces the Christmas narrative through the characters of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.
In addition to reading the Bible together, small group discussions will touch on the memories and stories that bring the Christmas story to life for us.
