about the study

From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the Nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.

FOR CHILDREN

FOR YOUTH

Explore the life of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ NEW Faithful Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph Adam Hamilton Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph in this four-week study. You’ll come to understand how Joseph’s place in the Nativity story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would have never chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.

Bethlehem always happens in the midst of bedlam Finding Bethlehem in the Midst of Bedlam

FOR CHILDREN

James W. Moore

FOR YOUTH

When did Christmas get so chaotic? How about on the very night Jesus was born? We tend to picture softly lowing cows and a warm, cozy stable when we sing Christmas carols, but Bethlehem was the picture of bedlam. Soldiers marched in the street. People were pushing and shoving. You couldn’t find an empty room and food may have been scarce as well. But in the midst of confusion and turmoil, God broke through and Jesus was born. This five-chapter Advent study explores how God can still be heard over our human noise. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion, a brief prayer, a focus for the week, and six daily Bible readings for personal devotional time. Abingdon Press. 9781501804281.

Studies Can you use some true Christmas this Christmas? Because of Bethlehem Love Is Born, Hope Is Here Max Lucado Each year, the Christmas season compels people to ask the Christmas questions. What’s the big deal about the baby in the manger? Who was he? What does his birth have to do with me? Of all the responses to these questions, there is one that stands out from the rest: Because of Bethlehem, God knows what it is like to be a human. When we talk to God about our challenges, our struggles, and our tough times, he understands, because he’s been there. He’s been here.

Discussion Starters A rich observance of Advent and Christmas that extends into the New Year NEW In Days to Come From Advent to Epiphany George H. Donigian Many people end their celebration of Christmas on December 25, but George Donigian reminds us that the celebration is just beginning. Donigian offers meditations that begin with Advent and continue through the 12th night of Christmas—January 6 or Epiphany. The meditations, like the surprises of an Advent calendar, touch on many different subjects. Some topics included are “An Editor,” “A Counting Song,” “Prudence,” and “Chrismons.” Instead of putting away the decorations on December 25, celebrate all the days to come with In Days to Come. It offers devotional meditations based on a merger of several Christmas traditions: Advent calendars, ancient Advent prayers known as the O Antiphons, the traditional celebration of Christmas on December 25, and the Armenian Orthodox celebration of Christmas on January 6. The meditations—four per week—count down from the first week of Advent to Epiphany. While each reading stands alone, the meditations are rooted in a weekly theme. Upper Room Books. Coming in September. 9780835817134. $12.99; Cokesbury Price $9.09

Five Questions of Christmas Unlocking the Mystery Rob Burkhart A different way to read the Christmas story.

A practical approach to learning what it means to truly celebrate the Savior NEW Total Christmas Makeover 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose Melissa Spoelstra In the bustle of the Christmas season, it can be easy to get swept up in all of the things to do. But it’s important to pause and remember that our priority should be to spend time celebrating Christ’s birth and not forget to invite Jesus to his own party. Christmas is far more than a celebration of an event from long ago or a modern holiday centered on shopping. Mindfully take time to listen to how God continues to speak through the Christmas story as the Gospel narratives centered on the birth of Jesus provide encouragement and revelation concerning the love of God and his wisdom for us today. In Total Christmas Makeover, author and Bible teacher Melissa Spoelstra provides a practical approach for you and your family to turn your attention toward God’s grace day-by-day as you prepare for Christmas. This 31-day devotional includes Scripture, guided prayer, reflection questions, and practical ideas to implement with each reading to help guide you in rediscovering rituals, relationship, and rest to connect you more deeply with Christ this holiday season.

The spiritual practice of coloring mandalas, lighting candles, and praying regularly can help us stay centered on God during this busy time of year. Based on the four candles of the Advent wreath, this coloring book for adults weaves together the popular practice of coloring with four simple methods of contemplative prayer. Each chapter includes a short vignette, an explanation of the weekly theme and prayer method, a simple candle lighting liturgy, seven mandalas for each week of contemplative coloring, and a closing prayer of illumination. Let the candles light the way and calm your spirit. Color and pray. And you will experience the most meaningful gift of all—a peace that passes all understanding as you journey toward the manger.
