Advent at Home

This year we have several wonderful ways for you to practice Advent at home. Look for our table in the Commons area that provides take home materials, such as prayer cards, daily practices, devotional books, journals, Advent wreath materials, and even children’s devotionals. There is something for all ages and we invite you to pick up materials for you/your family today.

Advent Book Study

New this Advent – join us in reading Amy-Jill Levine’s “Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent.” Dr. Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. By using her own religious tradition, Judaism, Levine will help us through these chapters understand the historical context of Jesus in his own religious tradition. Every week during Advent in the Advent nourishment emails, the Rev. Daniel Reeves will write a few thoughts on each chapter and offer guiding reflection questions for you to ponder and discuss with family and friends. You can purchase your copy of the book on Amazon.
