An Advent Study

Peace, Justice, Joy, and Salvation.


We usually think of Christmas as a time to give gifts. This study will consider the gifts we receive. Christmas is, after all, the birth of Immanuel, God with us. At Christmas, we celebrate the greatest of God's gifts. Throughout the study, we will examine texts from Isaiah through the lens of gifts. Embedded in these texts are the gifts that God longs to give us and deeply desires for us to receive into our lives: peace, justice, joy, and salvation. These gifts are nothing short of transformative, and if we receive them, they will re-form us into what we were intended to be from the beginning: reflections of God's own being. Rod Nitz will provide the leadership for this study, and it will begin Sunday, November 28 in room 202N. Contact Rod for more information.
