Advent Brown Bag Study: Faithful
November 9 – December 14
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. Using Adam Hamilton’s book Faithful and DVD series, we will examine Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. 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.
As we read this book, we will understand how Joseph’s story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have 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.
Brown Bag studies meet on Tuesdays at noon. Bring your lunch and join the discussion! Books are $14 and available in the church office. To register for this Advent study, contact the church office (740-373-1512).
