    Waiting is not wasted when waiting on the Lord.

  • Marys Voice : Advent Reflections To Contemplate The Coming Of Christ

    $24.00

    Find guidance through the advent season with the mother of Jesus and central figure in the story of Christmas, Mary.

    At Christmastime we remember that an ordinary, young, poor, oppressed woman was chosen to play a significant and breakthrough role in the redemption of the world. It is no mistake that a woman gets to be a part of all this, and that her voice, her questions, her fears, and her actions matter.

    Mary’s faith and her wisdom form an astonishing aspect of the story of how God became a person for the love of this world. And in our weary world that is waiting and longing for light, meaning, peace, and love, we can do as Mary did when she “treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”

  • Stay Awhile : Advent Lessons In Divine Hospitality

    $17.00

    While the world tries to rush us into Christmas, decorating the day after Halloween and packing it all up once the gifts are opened on December 25, Advent is a season of preparation that-like our holiday gatherings themselves-takes time and care.

Ultimately, we open the door and welcome our guests, and that is when, finally, we celebrate.

    ?Advent should feel the same way, a time to make ready for the long-awaited event of Christ’s birth. In Stay Awhile, pastor Kara Eidson presents a banquet table of inspiration for Advent, including weekly reflections for personal and small group use, brief daily devotions, and ideas to involve the whole congregation. Congregational resources include liturgies, sermon starters, children’s moments, and even a no-rehearsals-needed Christmas pageant.

  • Christmas : The Season Of Life And Light

    $20.00

    Of all the seasons of the church calendar, Christmas is the one most recognized and celebrated by our society at large. That means it’s the season we’re most familiar with–but that can also make it harder to see past Christmas’s many cultural trappings to its timeless beauty.

Anyone who feels tired of the consumer hype of “the holiday season” will be refreshed and awakened to the eternal truth the natural world reveals.

Gayle Boss invites us to realize that God can be known in all creatures, and that paying attention to these creatures makes us more fully human, more fully ourselves.

    “The practice of Advent has always been about helping us to grasp the mystery of a new beginning out of what looks like death. Other-than-human creatures–sprung, like us, from the Source of Life–manifest this mystery without question or doubt. The more I’m with animals and the more I learn about them, the more I know they can be more than our companions on this planet. They can be our guides. They can be to us ‘a book about God…a word of God, ‘ the God who comes, even in the darkest season, to bring us a new beginning.” –from All Creation Waits

  • Surprising God : Advent Devotions For An Uncertain Time

    $17.00

    The world is slowly emerging from the worst global emergency in a century, and the myriad struggles of the contemporary moment-division, isolation, illness, and uncertainty-make living our faith a challenge. For Christians, a number of questions have gained new urgency: Where do we find hope when it seems in such short supply? Where are the signs of God’s peace in this divided world? Where do we find a deeper sense of joy?

    Thomas G. Long and Donyelle C. McCray remind us that these are the questions of Advent in their new daily devotional, A Surprising God. Mindful of the stresses of life today in a world torn apart by conflict, marked by political division, and in the midst of a global health crisis, these devotions for Advent and Christmas invite readers to honest reflection on the challenges of being people of faith in this moment. Long and McCray explore what it means to wait for our salvation, to be open to the surprising thing that God is about to do, and to find hope in God’s choice of the small and the insignificant.

  • Searching For Christmas

    $5.99

    Discover the awesome God at the heart of the familiar Christmas story and discover the joy, hope, purpose, and belonging we’re all searching for.

    Most of us are familiar with the events of the first Christmas-the manger scene, shepherds watching sheep, angels singing their songs, and wise men arriving-but what if there’s more to the story? What if the birth of Jesus is actually the most significant event in all of history and can transform our lives?

    This evangelistic book goes beyond the birth of Jesus to look at what he did when he grew up and how he fulfilled the names given to him centuries beforehand by the prophet Isaiah.

    In a compelling, insightful, winsome and personal way, J.D. Greear shows that if we get to know the God who lies behind the Christmas story and at the heart of the Christmas story, we’ll discover the joy, hope, purpose and belonging we’re all searching for.

    Readers will see that Jesus is the Wonderful Counsellor, who can guide them in all truth; the Mighty God, who made and owns everything; the Eternal Father, who they can trust to love them for ever; and the Prince of Peace, who died in their place so that they can be forgiven and accepted eternally.

  • Making Room Leader Guide

    $15.99

    Learn how to make room in your heart for God and neighbor this Christmas.

    Often our Advent preparations have an inward focus as we prepare for the significance of God breaking into our world through the birth of the Christ child. But in a closer examination of the Advent story, we quickly learn that the focus of the coming of the newborn king is outward.

    In this book and Advent study, Dr. Ed Robb explores the warmth of welcome at Christmas following interactions with Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and the magi. Just as Jesus made room in God’s kingdom for a host of people that society wanted to leave on the margins, beginning with the appearance of the shepherds, we too should be asking ourselves who we can make room for this Christmas.

    Perhaps it is to the people in your community, or the newly immigrated family in town that doesn’t speak your language. Or maybe it’s the next-door neighbor who just settled in from yet another corporate move? The story of Christ’s birth encourages us to widen our borders and increase our sense of community-and make room for others.

    The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the four-week study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options.

  • Let Us Go Now To Bethlehem

    $14.99

    This charming devotional book takes readers on an inward journey to the miracle of Christ’s birth in the little town of Bethlehem. Many who will read this book probably haven’t actually traveled to Bethlehem. “But that is of little consequence to the adventure of arriving there, to the adventure of discovery that awaits the mystery and wonder in the birth of Jesus,” Todd Outcalt writes. “I hope readers can discover something new that they may have overlooked in the old, old story,” says Outcalt.

    Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem contains devotions from Advent through Epiphany. As the Gospel of Luke attests, Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem is both an expectant declaration filled with mystery and faith. Each day can offer these same expectations and wonders for readers if they open themselves to awe and joy.

  • Were On The Move Now Cycle B

    $13.95

    “Acknowledge your gift. Use your gift for the benefit of others and to the glory of God who has ‘gifted’ you. People may not long remember your name. They may never know your name. But your gift to them will last forever.”

    Throughout his collection of Advent centered sermons, Ronald Love reminds us to consider all of the gifts that God has given us and to use that which makes us unique to spread the word of God. Although it might be an intimidating task to preach about Jesus to those who may believe differently, Love calls to mind the talents that God has granted us in order to do just that. He reveals that the idea of preaching to others is not an invitation from the Lord but is instead a commandment from God: “What we have is a mandate to preach the gospel to all individuals.”

    Even if you do not believe that you are qualified enough to spread the word, God knows that he chose the right person for the job when he created you and me. Instead of doubting ourselves, love encourages us to be like Paul in his letters to the Corinthians: “Paul’s attitude was that nothing will stop him from proclaiming the good news! Paul’s attitude was that no obstacle would stop him from offering the message of salvation! Paul’s attitude was that he would remain steadfast in his call to be an apostle–an ambassador–for the Lord!”

    Sermon titles include:
    *Be Near, Ye Faithful (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24)
    *The Abounding Grace of God (Ephesians 1:3-14)
    *A Child of God (1 Corinthians 8:1-13)

    This Advent season, remember your talents, and share what you have been given with others in order to spread God’s word, just as Love uses his gifts to help us grow closer to Jesus at the time of his birth.

  • 2000 Year Old Preacher Cycle B

    $15.95

    “I am old and ready to die. To be truthful, I have been ready to die for years, but right now, I feel ready as I have never been before.”

    This quote was taken from one of David Leininger’s sermons titled “Simeon: A Monologue,” in which he takes at one of the most well-known stories in the Bible, Jesus’ Visit to the Temple, and looks at it from a new perspective. Throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher, he invites his audience to do the same, observing this holiday season from a new angle.

    Consider the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her status as the favored one of God. In his sermon, “Mary’s Complaint,” Leininger references how the favored mother of Jesus does not complain during her complications as she carries the Son of God, but continues to praise His name and remain grateful for the privilege that she had been given.

    Leininger uses a variety of topics to ask his congregation to view their lives from a new perspective, using sermons such as:
    *Advent 3: Hark the Herald…What? (John 1:6-8, 19-28)
    *Nativity of Our Lord: God Bless Santa! (Luke 2:1-20)
    *Epiphany 5: Heroines of the Faith (Mark 1:29-39)

    So take a step back from viewing the forest and look at the trees, have a seat at the feet of God, and experience new worlds that Leininger paints with his words of wisdom throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher.
