Advent Daytime Book Study

All are invited to join in the discussion of the book by Scott Erickson called “Honest Advent – Awakening to the Wonder of God-With-Us Then, Here, and Now.”

For too many of us, the celebration of Christmas has lost its wonder. Maybe for you, it has become a bittersweet season of complicated family dynamics, a predictable brand masking insatiable consumerism, or simply a sacred story that feels far too removed from our current chaotic world. Honest Advent seeks to illuminate the astonishing hope-filled truth that the God who showed up in the hardest parts of our humanity is still showing up today in those same places. We will explore together the 25 days of meaningful illustrations and meditations found in this book to rekindle the wonder of God-With-Us this season. Click here to view the book on Amazon.

Tuesday dates: 11/30-12/21, “Lunch Bunch – Advent Edition”: bring your own lunch and join in the Community Room.

This book study will also be offered in an evening session:
Wednesday dates: 12/1-12/22, 8:00-8:00pm over Zoom (link in Wednesday morning emails or call the office 703-361-7800).
