Alive in the Word
Season of Wonder and Hope
$5.56 - $7.85

Alive in the Word brings you resources to deepen your understanding of Scripture, offer meaning for your life today, and help you to pray and act in response to God’s word. Use any volume of Alive in the Word in the way best suited to you.

  • For individual learning and reflection, consider this an invitation to prayerfully journal in response to the questions you find along the way. And be prepared to move from head to heart and then to action.
  • For group learning and reflection, arrange for three sessions where you will use the material provided as the basis for faith sharing and prayer. You may ask group members to read each chapter in advance and come prepared with questions answered. In this kind of session, plan to be together for about an hour. Or, if your group prefers, read and respond to the questions together without advance preparation. With this approach, it’s helpful to plan on spending more time for each group session in order to adequately work through each chapter.
  • For a parish-wide event or use within a larger group, provide each person with a copy of this volume, and allow time during the event for quiet reading, group discussion and prayer, and then a final commitment by each person to some simple action in response to what he or she learned.

It is not possible to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ, the very Son of God, in a single day. The church gives us a season—from Christmas Eve to the feast of the Baptism of the Lord—to reflect with wonder on what God has done and is doing in our world. The gift of this child who would go on to give his very life for our salvation is the source of our hope in every age and through every storm. In Christmas, Season of Wonder and Hope, meditate with Catherine Upchurch on three New Testament passages that invite us to move through wonder to hope.

Christmas, Season of Wonder and Hope is a great resource for journeying through the Christmas season and keeping the Christmas light burning bright well after December 25! You can place yourself in the various gospel scenes and experience the joy, confusion, and mystery of what it was like for Mary, Joseph, the magi, and even Herod during this sacred time. Reflecting on the messages and teachings of the Christmas narratives from Scripture will bring you immeasurable joy and hope for the new year. Barbara M.
