As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them . . . —John 17:18
God sent Christ into the world as our Savior. That’s what Christmas is all about. In turn, Christ sends us into the world. But do we really understand how, where, and why we are sent? This five-week, churchwide Advent study challenges us through story, art, and Bible study to discover what it means to be Christ’s hands, feet, head, and heart.
Centered around a DVD with 8-10 minute videos created by a group of dynamic young pastors, Sent is appropriate for adults and youth. The study includes a Participant Book, a Leader Guide for adult small groups, a Youth Study Guide for students ages 13-18, and The Children’s Leader Guide for use with kids 12 and under. A companion book, Devotions for the Season, offers four weeks of personal daily reflections.
Devotions for the Season offers four weeks of daily reflections that provide a perfect addendum to the Sent Advent study. It also functions beautifully on its own. The reflections, prepared especially for use during Advent, include Scripture, personal insights, daily challenges, and prayers.
