Hope | Advent: Week 1

In the middle of all the Christmas prep, we can lose touch with the real depth and meaning of the season. Advent is a way to bring that back. This year, we can receive real hope. Contrary to popular belief, hope is more than optimism, and it’s available to us all.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Weekend Follow Up.

  1. We are officially in the Christmas season. What are you most hopeful for this holiday season?

  2. The holidays can be one of the most chaos filled times of the year. Why do you think hope is so important for us during this season?

  3. John 8:12 Jesus calls himself the light of the world and says that whoever follows him will not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. Talk about ways that you’ve seen Jesus light up paths in your life.

  4. Hope is the belief that a good ending is possible. Have you ever asked God to come into that place in your life and bring hope? What was the outcome of that situation?

  5. If we are honest, we all struggle to some degree to maintain hope when life feels like chaos. Where is a current struggle in your life that you need real hope?

  6. Pray: Everyone say a prayer for each person in the specific areas they shared this week.
