Adult Study

All the Good: A Wesleyan Way of Christmas

by Laceye C. Warner, Amy Valdez Barker, Jung Choi, and Sangwoo Kim

Sunday mornings starting November 28 at 9:00 a.m. in person at Crawford

“In All the Good: A Wesleyan Way of Christmas, a group of diverse Wesleyan scholars will take you on an Advent journey guided by the practices in John Wesley’s means of grace. John Wesley’s emphasis upon practices of piety and mercy—or good works—drew from the larger Christian tradition. Such practices are often referred to as means of grace.

“Each chapter guides participants through one of the four weeks of Advent by reflecting on biblical passages in light of an aspect of Wesleyan means of grace highlighted by illustrations and stories. Readers will look at preparing the way for God, the impact and significance of prayer, the substance of good works and caring for others, and sharing God’s mission to the world.”
