Embodied Light: Advent Reflections on the Incarnation

Upper Room BooksWhy do we celebrate Christmas? Why was Jesus born? What does Jesus’ birth have to do with my life? Embodied Light invites you to ponder our Creator’s daring adventure of becoming human and coming to earth to live among us.

During this four-week study, you will explore the meaning of incarnation—the miracle of our Creator choosing to become human and live among us. The Incarnation also says something to us about our own lives, about what being human means. Using scripture, prayer, and daily reflections, Embodied Light leads you to think about how to follow the fully human, fully divine Jesus with your whole self—mind, spirit, and body.

These books are available on November 29 in the Upper Commons, Lower Commons, Narthex, and Sunday School classrooms for families and individuals to take home to prepare their hearts for the season of Advent. Additionally, you can revisit the church’s devotions from previous years here.
