Feasting On The Word:
"As Christmas's cultural and commercial value increases evermore, the spiritual grounding of Advent expectation becomes more and more essential. Taking time for personal reflection and family devotion becomes just another item on parishioners' long to-do lists, often falling below endless shopping, wrapping, baking, and hosting. Sunday worship and Christmas Eve services are their primary opportunities to stop and consider the timeless truth and lasting promise of Advent, and pastors' primary opportunity to touch hearts and lives during this special season." from the introduction.
This new volume in the Feasting on the Word series provides an all-in-one pastor's companion for Advent, offering resources for sermon preparation along with ready-to-use liturgies. A complete order of service drawing from a Gospel and an Old Testament text is provided for each of the four Sundays in Advent, plus Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In addition, hymn suggestions, midweek services, and children's sermon suggestions make this an invaluable resource for the Advent season.
Also see Every Valley: Advent with the Scriptures of Handel's Messiah, available separately.
