Experience the unexpected this Christmas.

During this Advent season, Rachel Billups guides readers through the themes of hope, love, joy, and peace by sharing the stories of Elizabeth and Zechariah, Herod, the Magi, and the shepherds. Each set of unexpected characters has something to teach about living faithfully on the journey to Christmas.

These four video sessions feature Rachel guiding participants through the content. Video sessions are 10-12 minutes in length.

Additional components for the four-week small group study include the book and leader guide.
