For Advent 2015, the church community at St. Barnabas will be taking part in the Christian tradition of preparing our spiritual selves for Christmas.
The St. Barnabas Advent Book for 2015, which the congregation is invited to read together, is The Little Book of Advent:
“The Little Book of Advent is an indispensable collection of readings from some of the most celebrated modern-day spiritual writers, with passages specially selected for each day of Advent. These carefully chosen insights come from men and women, lay and ordained, across the denominational spectrum, and their wisdom is combined with both a suggested scripture passage, and a prayer to make your own.”
A number of the congregation enjoyed the Little Book of Lent earlier this year, discovering its pages to contain an encouraging wealth of easily accessible ‘thought for the day’ daily readings. You can read a little bit more as to this year’s Advent book and take a look inside, here.
The accompanying Advent Discussion Group will take place on the following dates from 8-9.30pm:
Wednesday 30 November;
Tuesday 8 December;
Tuesday 15 December; and
Tuesday 22 December.
If you would like any further details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you find for one reason or other you are unable to come along, but like the look of the book, it is of course possible to simply read the text by oneself. Each selected daily passage will take about three minutes to read.
