In John Wesley’s famous sermon, “The Almost Christian,” he encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly. In Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience, author and pastor Magrey deVega leads a group of authors in exploring how we can make the same commitment to Christ during Advent, and connect our Wesleyan heritage with the traditional Advent themes of Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace.
In Session 4 titled Altogether Joy, Magrey deVega, Ingrid McIntyre, April Casperson, and Matt Rawle explore an altogether joy, how it differs from happiness, and how it can remain with us even during periods of sadness or struggle. This session wraps up Advent and ends with a discussion of Wesleyan covenant renewal, inviting you to renew your commitment to Christ as a way of receiving altogether peace, hope, love, and joy.
