The Gospel of John reminds us, "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it" (John 1:5). In this season that feels dark to many, as people of faith we have the promise of enduring light. But we'll need to look for it! What difficulty will the season of Advent hold for you this year? Separation from family? Financial distress? Isolation? The distress of living with the deep unknown? In the midst of the darkness, there is light!
The Upper Room invites you to join us this Advent as we seek the Light in a season of darkness. Together, we will spend daily time reflecting on the light of the season and engage in times of prayer and reflection on scripture.
Featuring Todd Outcalt's book Blue Christmas, our online experience will include:
- Daily devotional readings from Blue Christmas: Devotions of Light in a Season of Darkness.
- Guided prayer and scripture readings (audio recordings).
- Space for comments and interaction with other eCourse registrants.
Blue Christmas: Devotions of Light in a Season of Darkness is an honest Advent devotional that meets people where they are?in their hurts, fears, and disappointments?and offers them hope through the birth of Jesus Christ. In our online experience, we'll gather around this devotional guide to experience scripture, meditation, and prayer, and we will be moved to action together.
