First Church Reads: an Advent Devotional

This Advent season we will be reading Walter Brueggemann’s Celebrating Abundance, a collection of daily devotionals for Advent compiled by Richard Floyd.

About the book: “Advent is a time for telling the truth – the truth of our weariness and our anxiety, yes, but also the truth of the relentless generosity of God, which opens up futures that seem to be shut down. Walter Brueggemann is a persistent truth-teller, and his sermons invite us to consider the newness and abundance of God that is always already breaking into our settled lives. If Advent is also a time for waking up, consider Walter an indefatigable alarm clock.”

You can pick up your copy for $10 in the church office, while supplies last. You may also find the book available from your favorite booksellers.
