Advent
Intergenerational Sunday School Class
How does the light of Christmas reach you? Does the glow of holiday candles and the glitter of tinsel too easily distract you from the coming of the Christ child, the Light of the World? Do you have too much to do, too far to travel, too many seasonal rituals and obligations to be drawn to the burning fire of God’s love that descended to Bethlehem?

During Advent (which means “watching”) we are asked to refocus on the brilliant, challenging message of hope and redemption that comes to us this season of the year—a message whose intensity can transform us in ways that illumine our days and remind us of the work we have to spread God’s light to those around us.

The book Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas collects short daily readings that draw us into the greater meaning of the season. Don Saunders has led class discussions based on this book in the past: it features short, timeless pieces by well-known Christian writers from many eras: C.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Annie Dillard, Bernard of Clairvaux.

This year we want to make this class Intergenerational. We will meet during the Sunday School hour starting December 2, the first Sunday in Advent, and in a novel twist (!), we will actually assign discussion leaders for certain essays, attempting to focus on three or so each week. It’s understood that not everyone can attend each week, and readings need not even be done in the sequence the book gives them. If you would like to partcipate, there are copies of the book available in Holly's office. Join us as we watch for the light!
