Christmas is going to feel different for all of us this year; some might even call it an “almost Christmas.” Looking through the lens of John Wesley’s famous sermon “Almost Christian,” we will discover how to move from almost to altogether peace, hope, love, and joy this Christmas season. Pick up a copy of Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience by Magrey deVega, Ingrid McIntyre, April Casperson, and Matt Rawle to read on your own—or better yet, join one of the many study groups that will be reading it together this Advent. You can use the Small Group Locator tool on our website to find a group (keyword “Advent”) or contact Pastor Rachael Dunlap.
Books can be ordered here (cost: $17) and then can be picked up at the Birmingham First Welcome Desk on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and at the Berkley First Front Desk on Tuesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
