The Lord Is Our Light invites you to explore Gods hope and presence through a study of the scripture readings for Advent and Christmas. Key Bible readings call us to praise God as we actively wait for the coming of Gods redemption and new creation. Through the readings, we hear the call to celebrate the light of God revealed through Jesus Christ.
The season of Advent offers opportunities to prepare for Gods coming in human form in the baby Jesus and for the approach of Gods kingdom with the second coming of Christ. Hope is the focus of Advent worship, study, and prayer. We will discover the light that began in the manger and that continues as we look forward with hope to Christ's return.
The Lord Is Our Light is based upon the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for year B of the church year, a three-year cycle of Bible readings. The study includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. It offers the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a five-session study. The goal is to help participants understand, appreciate, and engage in meaningful and joyous celebrations of Advent and Christmas and to live each day in God's light through Jesus Christ.
The study book includes a leader guide with information about the season of Advent, suggestions for starting and leading small groups, Bible background, and discussion activities

Glenn1133 Stars Out Of 5Good Study But Needs WorkJanuary 28, 2015Glenn113Quality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This is a good Bible Study for Advent, but it needs a separate leader's guide so the leader is not flipping back and forth between the pages. Also, the discussion questions did not generate the discussion that I expected.
