Who are the disciples around the manger, not necessarily at the manger, whose lives teach us devotion to God and discipleship to God’s ways? This Advent season we listen to the lives of disciples in the Bible who may or may not be well known, but who help us examine our own lives and discipleship. By listening to their faith, we can understand our own better and what God desires for us. Their lives were a testimony to the coming Light of the world. They prepared the way. Who they are and what they did teach us about what it means to see the Divine presence in our lives. They prepare us to meet God.
Join us as we listen to the lives of disciples around the manger and grow in our discipleship to God’s gift to the world through them.
