There is no better time for us to explore our hope for new beginnings than during the season of Advent and Christmas. As we praise God and eagerly await the birth of Christ in our lives, The Lord Is Our Light challenges us to cultivate faithful lives here and now. Based upon the Revised Common Lectionary Scriptures for Year B, the study with built-in leader guide includes commentary and reflection on key Bible readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. The study is divided into five sections to coincide with the Advent and Christmas season. The study leader guide features information about the season of Advent, suggestions for starting and leading small groups, Bible background, and discussion activities.
