So what are you waiting for?
This 4-session course is just right for the 4 weeks of Advent – but suitable for any time of year.
The season of Advent bends time itself. And for us, time drags or speeds by, depending on our circumstances and stage of life. Our attitude to time gives us clues about our attitude towards God.
It’s a cliche to say that we live our lives often waiting for life to start, but that’s what many people experience, until they realise that they were living their lives all along. Christ, for whom we wait and to whom we will return, is both beyond us and beside us; outside time and bound by human time.
Whether you’re always in a hurry or have too much time on your hands, this course is for you, as we explore a spiritual life that encourages us to be active in the chronological world, and rooted in Kairos, God’s time.
1. Go with haste
2. How Long O Lord how long?
3. Prepare the way of the Lord!
4. Kairos and Chronos: is time running out?
The course materials comprise of a course booklet, course audio and a transcript booklet (which sets out the words exactly as spoken on the recorded material). The course booklet and audio work hand-in-hand with each other and both are essential in following the development of the themes raised in this course.
The course booklet, written by Revd Lucy Winkett, includes questions aimed at provoking wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs the course audio, and group members will benefit from having their own personal copy of the course booklet. In addition many groups find the transcript booklet, which cross-references to the tracks on the audio, invaluable. Especially useful for Group Leaders as they prepare, the transcript can also help group members feel more confident about joining in the discussion; catch up on missed sessions; and go over the recorded material at leisure.
