A RESOURCE FOR ADVENT, CHRISTMAS AND EPIPHANY
by Anna L. Liechty and Phyllis Vos Wezeman
A resource for Christian educators, clergy and worship teams that uses well-known Christmas hymns to communicate the story of Jesus' birth. Each candle of an Advent wreath is assigned a phrase that also serves as the focus for a first-person narrative and weekly themes of Hope, Peace, Faith, Love, Joy, or Life. Each week's theme forms the basis of a children's story tying together Scripture, music, narrative, and lesson.
Themes and Scripture passages for the four weeks of Advent, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, and Epiphany Sunday include:
- First Sunday of Advent: Sing Hope
- Second Sunday of Advent: Sing Peace
- Third Sunday of Advent: Sing Faith
- Fourth Sunday of Advent: Sing Love
- Christmas Eve or Christmas Day: Sing Joy
- Epiphany Sunday: Sing Life
Through their participation in this seasonal series, people of all ages will find their hearts singing the message of Christmas with new understanding. Includes education, worship and craft ideas for home, Sunday School classes and worship.

NOTE: Please order a review copy before ordering in quantity as we are unable to accept returns of more than one copy of a book. Returns are subject to a 10% restocking fee. Also, our books are shipped from the printer directly to you so we do not see the book and can't guarantee the quality. Therefore, we ask that you examine them carefully when they arrive to ensure there are no missing pages as the printer will only replace misprints if they are returned within 14 days. If there is a problem, call us immediately so we can arrange to have the defective book replaced.
