Nurturing Your Spirit!

A Wonderful Advent Resource for Study Groups

We've all been there. 

Sometimes as Advent rolls around, there is a sense of "same old, same old." 

There are some wonderful liturgical resources available and many kinds of bible studies out there, but perhaps you are looking for a different way to get your group into the spirit of this wonderful season of preparing for the coming of the Christ Child into the world!

Written by Bishop Deborah Vaughan and the Rev’d Jean Porche, this book of Advent reflections calls us to explore once again the beauty of the Christmas narrative.  

That Christmas feeling  -- hearts tingling with wonder at the mystical mingling of Divinity and stables, shepherds and choirs of angels and Christmas and what it means to the world -- is, for many, only a memory.
In the busy-ness of life, it can be difficult to set aside time to prepare our hearts and nurture our Spirit, and so the Christmas miracle gets lost in the endless list of preparations for the holidays.

It doesn't have to be that way.  We believe this little book of devotions will inspire readers and restore the shine to their experience of Christmas.

This resource is helpful for
  • priests, pastors, prayer and worship leaders
  • church school teachers
  • youth group leaders
  • leaders of women's and men's groups
  • anyone looking for a daily devotion resource

This book of reflections will be helpful whether you are looking for a weekly resource with a study group, a resource to spark ideas for worship and preaching, a daily devotional aid for congregation members... It is as versatile and unique as your parish!

We are offering the book as a PDF e-book at one low price of $40 until Nov. 27, with a license to print out as many copies as you need.  You will receive your download in your email inbox up to an hour after ordering.

There is a companion study guide with excellent discussion starters for the material so that each member can explore the material and deepen their experience of Advent.

Until November 27, the Study Guide comes free with your order!
