The Lord Is Our Light invites you to explore Gods hope and presence through a study of the scripture readings for Advent and Christmas. Author Elaine Crawford calls us to explore our hope for new beginnings, praising God as we eagerly await the birth of Christ in our lives. Recalling the fulfillment of Gods promises at Christmas, she invites us to imagine the future culmination of our hope in Christs death, resurrection, and second coming. Dawsons reflections challenge readers to cultivate faithful lives here and now, in active expectation for the coming of the Christ Child.
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 key Bible readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. It offers the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a five-session study. It will 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.
