Quick Overview

Based on the traditional hymn ‘O come, O come Emmanuel’, John Cox’s Advent course provides the opportunity for a reality check: the reality of who we are and what our world is, the reality of our hopes and fears. It encourages us to look afresh at the reality of Jesus, the One who comes and ask how much he is really a part of our lives.
Based on the traditional hymn ‘O come, O come Emmanuel’, John Cox’s Advent course provides the opportunity for a reality check: the reality of who we are and what our world is, the reality of our hopes and fears. It encourages us to look afresh at the reality of Jesus, the One who comes and ask how much he is really a part of our lives.

As we look forward at Advent, this book encourages us to look in other directions as well: to look around at those who are lost and alienated, at outcasts and refugees; to look within us and within the world; to look up to find hope and aspiration; to look with gratitude; and to look with the eyes of loving response as we meet with Christ, the One we long for, the One who we believe comes to meet our needs and those of our world.

This short course of six sessions is intended for use by small groups but could equally be helpful for individual use in setting a framework for private study, devotion and reflection.
