Expecting the Unexpected | An Advent Devotional Guide (Meeks)
Engage your members with an Advent devotional resource different from any other they have seen. Expecting the Unexpected offers far more than a typical re-telling of the Nativity story. Instead, this daily devotional guide presents snapshots from throughout Jesus' life in which he persistently does the unexpected.
His arrival came at an unexpected time for Mary and Joseph, and it began a lifetime pattern in which Jesus confounded his family, perplexed the religious leaders of his day, and baffled his own disciples. His followers did not expect his death & resurrection - and, his second coming will occur at an unexpected time.
For each day of Advent, this book offers reflections on:
Instances when Jesus did the unexpected
Instances when we personally encounter the unexpected in our own lives
These daily devotions are presented in five chapters, for the 4 weeks of Advent, plus the week after Christmas. In addition to the author's comments, these brief devotions include:
- Appropriate lyrics from Charles Wesley hymns
- Images for meditation
- Reflective questions
This private devotional resource can also serve as the basis of a group study during Advent.
