While we’re not producing new podcast episodes in the month of July. That doesn’t mean we’re not sharing resources with you. We’ve offered three categories this week. Pick the one that you need at this moment.
We’ll be back next week with other suggestions for you.
Christmas in July
Is it too soon to be thinking about Advent and Christmas?
Maybe. Maybe not.
If it seems like July is too far away from Christmas…
September is only 6 weeks away. Before we know it we’ll find ourselves gathering around tables to celebrate Thanksgiving and finding ourselves beginning the advent journey.
You’ve probably guessed by now, this week we’re sharing resources for the Advent and Christmas Season.

An Unlikely Advent by Rachel Billups
Coming August 2023
This four-week Advent study focuses on the experiences of four sets of often overlooked characters in the Nativity story. During this Advent season, Rachel Billups guides readers through the themes of hope, love, joy, and peace by sharing the stories of Elizabeth and Zechariah, Herod, the Magi, and the shepherds. Each set of unexpected characters has something to teach about living faithfully on the journey to Christmas.
The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the four-week study, including session plans, activities, discussion questions, and multiple format options.
Additional components for the four-week small group study include the book and DVD/Video Sessions featuring Rachel Billups.
