Joy | Advent: Week 3

Joy isn’t just a happy, warm feeling in our bellies, it’s a powerful act of defiance against despair and discouragement.

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. Whether it’s four candles and a wreath, or one of those new sweet lego calendars there’s a bunch of traditions that happen over the holiday season. What’s your favorite Christmas time tradition?

  2. Joy can feel like a big, vague idea. Let’s start unpacking that. First, how would you define joy?

  3. Now that we’ve defined joy, what are some things that bring it you and why? (Protip: think back to what you wrote on that green card or your phone during service.)

  4. Defiant joy is to trust God’s presence and light in the midst of darkness. Easy to say, tougher to do. Read Isaiah 9:2 out loud talk about where you might be “walking in darkness” right now?

  5. Pray: Help your group find that defiant joy. Take a moment and pray for joy and light in the places where your folks are walking through darkness.
