During this busy end-of-the-year season, what do you see? What do you hear? What do you taste? What do you feel? Often, our senses are overwhelmed by the fancy lights, the noise and smells of hectic parties, and the burdens of sending cards and wrapping gifts. This book and this series of bible studies will provide an opportunity to have some time to stop and reflect on the message of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love so that we may experience Christmas differently this year.
About the textbook:
"Everything seems different at the end of the year. We put lights on our houses to dispel the growing darkness, Christmas music floods local radio stations, apple cider and cranberry sauce are again on the menu, and wrapping paper and tape are always ready. Things just look, smell, and taste differently during the Advent and Christmas season, and these differences are a sign to us that God is about to do something radical and different. Christmas is when God surrounded the divine with senses of his own. That first noel was when God had eyes to see suffering, ears to hear our cries, and hands to hold those in need, and all of these senses were bundled in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. “This will be a sign to you,” the angel told the shepherds, and they traveled to Bethlehem and found a child. What signs do you see during the Advent and Christmas season that point you to the divine?"
