"What You Can Do" Bible study for Advent
As the new liturgical year begins on Dec. 3, the General Board of Church and Society invites you to participate in the Bible study, "What You Can Do."

This six-part study explores the call to social justice and spirituality found in the Revised Common Lectionary for Year C. Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent on Dec. 3, the study is scheduled to run through the Baptism of the Lord on Jan. 7.

The study is designed to make people think about what they can do individually and corporately to help those in their neighborhood and those they have never met. Each two-page guide includes brief Scripture analysis, questions for reflection, suggestions for action, and a personal reflection to spur discussion but still take only 45 minutes to an hour. A leader guide is included with suggested time breakdowns.
