ADVENT 2020 – INCARNATION
Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas
Because we cannot worship together in-person, for Advent this year we are focusing on the Incarnation of Christ—the ways that Jesus does show up and is embodied in our lives outside of church. Each Sunday and Wednesday in Advent we will be exploring an aspect of Christ’s incarnation revealed in the titles & names that Jesus is given throughout scripture. We will be leaning heavily on a book called “Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas” by United Methodist pastor, Adam Hamilton. You are encouraged to order your own copy of the book, which is available in lots of online outlets.
Beginning Dec 2, on each Wednesday in Advent we will have a short online worship/devotional time at 7:00pm. We hope you can join us!
In addition, we have put together an “ADVENT-IN-A-BAG” for each household. These are ready to be picked up at any time. We will be using bits from the bag each Sunday morning and each Wednesday evening through Christmas & even Epiphany. Please swing by church to pick up your bag, and if you live close to another CLC person/family, feel free to grab their bag and deliver it to them as well.
Since we cannot eat together in-person for Advent, you are encouraged to share a virtual meal with your fellow brothers & sisters at Christ Lutheran. Here’s a possible menu for you to use so we can at least be eating the same things on Wednesday nights:
- Dec. 2 Soup & Salad Night
- Dec. 9 Baked Potato Night
- Dec. 16 Spaghetti Night
- Dec. 23 Pizza Night
