New Advent Bible Study for 2017!

Advent Bible Study

Songs are very much at the centre of our celebrations of Advent and Christmas, and have been so for many since childhood.

Luke’s Gospel has a series of songs as part of his introduction to the story of Jesus, and these have been handed down to us within our Bibles, and as part of the liturgical life of the Church. Many will recite (if not sing) the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (maybe also the Benedictus) as part of their regular worship, so the words are familiar. But maybe they haven’t been looked at as often in their actual context, leading up to and just beyond the birth of Jesus.

The studies all follow an identical pattern, with a bit of a musical theme:-

Intro (opening discussion); Accompaniment (a little background to the passage); Verses (a commentary on the passage); Chorus (ten questions for group discussion); Outro (something to take away and think about)

As always, permission is given to duplicate and distribute the study around the members of a small group meeting.

Christian Prayer

Prayers: Signs of hope!

A collection of prayers for those who need a bit of reassurance that all is not without hope in this world!

Quite often our hope comes from the faithful witness of Christians, and also the offering of love by those of other faiths or none, in helping others in need. All love, ultimately, has its source in God.

Bless all those who are,
through no fault of their own,
forced to flee their homes
and take, along with family,
only that which they can carry
and seek a safer place to live.
Remind us of our Saviour who,
as a child, was also a refugee,
finding shelter in a foreign land,
and give us hearts and hands
willing to reach out and help
these, our distant relatives
within your worldwide family.

God’s love surround you,
God’s Spirit guide you,
God’s whisper cheer you,
God’s peace calm you,
God’s shield protect you,
God’s wisdom arm you,
wherever God may lead you.
