The Bible is rich with promises that were either realised in the coming of Christ or that await fulfilment in his coming again. Four of these promises are traditional Advent themes and they are considered in the first half of this course:
the return of Christ in judgement
the Word of God
the birth and role of John the Baptist
Promise is also a predominant theme explored in the four weeks after Christmas:
the journey of the Magi
the story of Anna and Simeon
Promises, Promises is an eight-week course, suitable for both individual and group use, of exploration and reflection on the meaning and message of two of the most important seasons in the Christian calendar, seasons often neglected amid the many distractions of this time of year.
Each session includes prayers, Bible readings, reflections, discussion questions, meditations, suggestions for further reading, and ideas for action. There is also an optional quiz for ice-breaking in groups, and suggestions for suitable music.
