LIGHT OF THE WORLD:
A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO ADVENT
By Amy-Jill Levine
December 1 – December 22
No one would consider me a beginner when it comes to Advent. Yet, Professor Levine’s book moved me to a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Advent season.
Please join me in this four week Advent study as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus this Christmas.
December 1 – Session One: The Meaning of Memory
December 8 – Session Two: The Promise of Potential
December 15- Session Three: The Journey of Joy
December 22- Session Four: The Gifts of the Gentiles
This will be an online study through Zoom. Please email me at email@example.com to let me know if you will be participating, so that I may send you the Zoom link.
The books are available online through various sources. At Amazon, the book is available in hard copy and digitally.
I hope, together, we will prepare our hearts for Christmas by exploring the deeper meaning of Advent.
2:3 Many peoples shall come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth instruction,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
2:4 He shall judge between the nations,
and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
2:5 O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the LORD!
