We'll be looking at Paula Gooder's, The Meaning is in the Waiting.
About the Book: With warmth and insight, Gooder helps us re-learn the skill of waiting, and invites us to engage with the real, flesh-and-blood people that are the subject of our Scripture readings and lessons each Advent: Abraham and Sarah, the Hebrew prophets, John the Baptist, and Mary. Each of them exemplified how to wait upon God for wisdom, joy, and the meaning of life.
About the Author: Paula Gooder is a writer and lecturer in biblical studies. Her passion is to communicate to best of biblical scholarship to an audience that would otherwise not read it. She seeks to bring the Bible alive again for Christians for whom it has become over-familiar, stale or just plain confusing.
The series starts on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, and runs for 4 sessions (until December 20, 2023) and will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM for 60-90mins. Free to join. Book purchase is required.
