“Advent is not the kind of ‘preparation’ that involves shopping and parties and cards. Such illusions of abundance disguise the true craving of our weary souls. Advent is preparation for the demands of newness that will break the tired patterns of fear in our daily lives.”

—An excerpt from Celebrating Abundance

In 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.

Study guides and book ordering information will be released in the summer of 2019.
