In December, we will set aside our current Sunday School lesson, and focus on Advent with the 4-week series: Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent by Amy-Jill Levine.
Dive deep into the history of the birth of Christ. Advent
is not only the perfect time to read the story of the birth of Jesus, it’s
also a great time to dive deeper into the biblical texts that surround the
event. In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide
to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine
shows how the Gospel narratives connect to the Old Testament, highlights
the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, and emphasizes the
importance of Mary’s visitation, the census, the stable, the star of
Bethlehem, and the flight to Egypt.
We gather at 9:30 a.m. for the sharing of joys and concerns, followed by the Sunday School/Bible Study lesson.
All are welcome!
