Bethlehem always happens in the midst of bedlam.
Christmas or confusion, Bethlehem or bedlam . . . Which will you
choose this year? The truth is, we don’t have to choose, because
Christmas always happens right in the midst of our chaos. God breaks
into our noisy disorder and is made known in Jesus Christ. Christmas and
confusion—weren’t they intimately related at the first Christmas when
Jesus was born? Sometimes we forget that. That’s what this study is
about—how Christ breaks into our chaos and confusion and brings
Christmas—how Bethlehem always happens in the midst of bedlam.
The re-introduction of this all-church Advent study, which features a new Leader Guide and DVD, has five sessions—one for each Sunday of Advent and one for Christmas. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion, a brief prayer, a focus for the week, and six daily Bible readings for personal devotional time during the week. This all ages study also offers resources for youth and children.
Each of the DVD's five sessions will run 8-10 minutes long. Each session will focus on real-life stories or interviews to draw out the theme of the chapter, showing how individuals and churches embody the key ideas
