    Around the Advent Circle 2021

    I love this Bible study! So simple and easy to organize for myself and small groups. And it can be shared with the whole parish for personal, family and friends on their own.

    We like the new Advent series from USA. It is so straightforward and easy to read and understand. Not too long either but enough to have a discussion and a sharing of ideas. We prefer this material generally, to the previous options we've used over the years. We just prefer the 'every day' language and the fact that We don' t have to read over and over the same paragraph to try and get a feeling or understanding of it. It gives pause for thought as to how we can approach Advent in the best spiritual way.
