Expecting Christ

"If anyone is looking for a resource for a study or fellowship group which is devoid of a confident and competent leader, this course would be of huge benefit. It would work very well in Advent with its stirring up of memories and expectations, but it could work just as well at any other time."

Prayer Book Society Journal 2013

This course is just right for the 4 weeks of Advent - and suitable for use at any time of year.

About Expecting Christ:

The writer Graham Greene famously said that there is always one moment in childhood where a door opens and lets the future in. In this course written by Bishop David Wilbourne we look at several moments in our faith and lives where a door opens and lets Christ in, catching the sense of expectancy which not only comes at the season of Advent, but throughout the year. In particular, we will be thinking about how Christ can surprise us and meet us in four distinct contexts: in family, in ourselves, in prayer and in the end.

Four sessions:

Session (1) Expecting Christ in family

Session (2) Expecting Christ in me

Session (3) Expecting Christ in prayer

Session (4) Expecting Christ in the end

The course materials comprise a course booklet, a CD, and a transcript booklet (which sets out the words exactly as spoken on the CD). The CD and course booklet work hand-in-hand with each other and both are essential in following the development of the themes raised in this course: family & community, prayer, personal faith and approaches to the end of life.
