The Light Will Shine: A Study for Advent
A new Bible Study will begin on Sunday, November 26 at 9:00 AM. We will meet each Sunday in the Wilkinson Center through December 31.
Is it the season of "Santa" or the "Savior?" The four Sundays leading up to the celebration of Jesus' birth creates contrasting and conflicting images and meanings. With each passing week, we feel the stress of shopping for gifts, getting the Christmas cards or Christmas newsletter out before Christmas Day, attending holiday parties and preparing to host families for Christmas Dinner. What gets obscured by all the activities is the deep significance of Advent. This five session study, The Light Will Shine: A Study for Advent, will offer a fresh perspective on the journey through Advent to Christmas and beyond. We will look at the Scripture texts for each Sunday in Advent and highlight the underlying message and themes. The goal is to be equipped to see beyond the "hustle and bustle, glitter and glamour" of the commercialization of Christmas to the "good news of great joy" that give shape and substance to our faith.
