God gives us fulfilled promises, enlightened hearts, a sacred inheritance – but most of all his only-begotten Son – as we discover in our lessons for this Holy Night. Merry Christmas!
Concluding our Advent foray into spiritual disciplines, the letter to the Hebrews invites us in the discipline of obedience in response to Christ’s sacrifice.
Today St Paul encourages the Philippians (and us!) to pray, as we continue exploring those spiritual disciplines that will prepare the way for Lord.
In Philippians today, Paul exhorts us to grow in knowledge of Christ, which is best done through the spiritual discipline of Scripture study. So join us in brief workshop in lectio divina, a prayerful way of engaging with the Bible.
This first week in Advent, Paul models the spiritual discipline of genuine Christian fellowship as a way to help us wait for our Savior’s coming.
