As Thanksgiving approaches, we become busy with all the planning of the holiday season. We plan meals. We purchase items that we hope people will enjoy. Yet, what about taking time to reflect with heart-felt anticipation of the excitement of expecting a new born birth?
During this Bible Study, we will be taking time to reflect on Old and New Testament scripture passages that will guide us on the journey to the manger. Along the way, we’ll discuss wonder, excitement, amazement, and being present.
This class will help you reflect on the gift of Jesus but will also help you take time to reflect on what it means to give thanks for what we have: friends, family, a place to live, and food on the table.You’ll share what you and your family do as holiday rituals to celebrate this time of year together, and the study will include ideas of craft ideas or family activities that you can do.
We will be starting the Bible Study before Thanksgiving and ending the week before Christmas. All those who participate in this Bible Study will need access to a Bible and a journal of some kind.
