Advent 2019, Presbyterians across the country are invited to
join a denomination-wide book study on Walter Bruggemann’s
Celebrating Abundance. Using thoughtfully prepared
small group and individual weekly study guides,
Presbyterians will journey through Advent reflecting on
themes of God’s abundance as revealed through the small
details of faith stories—a cry in the wilderness, a
teenage mother, a worn down stable and a promise of a new
day. As a church, we plan to offer small group weekly
studies in December. The book will be available in
mid-November and can be purchased for $15.
