    I really like the way this is put together and the reflections are very good. I would prefer it it were editable so I could at least place a church logo or something on it as well as a Parish Message box so it could be a little personalized.

    Around the Advent Circle is my Go-To for small group Bible Study. It is simple and provides an opportunity to dig into the Word as we journey through the season of Lent together. I love Ann Naffziger's simple format and thoughtful comments and questions to facilitate our group study.
