How Can a Weary World Rejoice?

An Advent Journey Through Luke

You may be entering this Advent season weary from this year or the past few years. Maybe you or those around you are holding grief or loss in the aftermath of personal, national or international tragedies, as well as the global uncertainty of a lingering pandemic. Or you may be experiencing a range of emotions heading into this time of year — from anxiety and sadness to a sense of excitement or joy.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, Advent provides us all with an opportunity to re-examine the life of Christ, why He came and how He loves us. Unless we see and understand who He really is, the weariness of the world can easily overwhelm us, and we can become hopeless.

Join us, beginning November 27, to encounter Jesus Christ through the Gospel of Luke. Along with daily readings, you’ll also have the opportunity to take a deeper dive into common questions about Jesus and Christianity in a section called “Faith Asked Question.”

So prepare with us to celebrate Jesus’ birth on Christmas Day, having experienced who Jesus is through His Word. No matter what circumstances you’re facing this season, we pray that as we look to our Savior together, He will renew and restore your hope.
