ADVENT/CHRISTMAS: Advent marks the beginning of the Christian year. Many congregations hold four-week study sessions on appropriate scriptures for the season.
Saying Amen through Advent is written as an Advent resource for congregations that want to study scriptures and messages that highlight social implications of the gospel and call Christians to deepen their discipleship. Additionally, the book includes messages for the Christmas season. These messages may be used for personal meditation as well as in small study groups. After each Advent and Christmas message there is an opportunity for the reader to reflect on questions. There are several messages included for each week during Advent. As a multi-year resource, the book offers an opportunity for congregations to prepare Advent studies for up to four years.
Saying Amen through Advent includes a helpful study guide.
