Advent Book Study: The Meaning Is In The Waiting

An Advent Book Study with Pastor Brandon

Join Pastor Brandon for a weekly, daytime book study during the four weeks of Advent. If you are unable to attend our regular daytime Bible studies, consider joining one of these short-term studies. We will read Paula Gooder’s The Meaning is in the Waiting: The Spirit of Advent. Gooder invites us to notice the goodness that can be found in the act of waiting and being present in the moment. Her reflections find inspiration in the biblical stories of Abraham and Sarah, the Prophets, John the Baptist, and Mary, mother of Jesus. 

The study will be offered on two different days. A group will meet on Mondays at Noon beginning on November 27 in room 306. Persons in the Monday group are invited to bring a sack lunch to enjoy during our discussions. A morning group will meet on Friday’s beginning on December 1 at 9:30 AM in Bishop’s Parlor. A registration fee of $10 covers the cost of the book. Please register below by November 26.
