All-Church Advent Study: Light of the World

In this short book, biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. Together we will learn about how the Gospel stories connect to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Judaism, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.

Here's how you can participate:

1. Join one of our existing small groups for the study: Wednesdays at 11:30 am and Thursdays at 9 am. Both groups meet at the church.

2. Join an evening small group with Pastor Amanda on Zoom. Day and time to be determined by group members. Email pastor@cdaumc.org if you are interested.

3. Join Pastor Amanda after worship on Sundays at the church.

4. Read the book on your own. Or better yet, form a small group with your friends!

The study begins the week of November 27. You can order the book online through Cokesbury or your favorite book retailer. If you would like the church to order a copy for you, contact the church office by November 20. Funds are available if you need financial aid.
