Friends, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re so grateful to spend it with you! Today, we come bearing all kinds of good news, and we’ll make it short and sweet because we don’t want you to miss any of it!
First, make sure you join us on 11/27 for the first Sunday of Advent. We’ll begin our 2016 Advent reading plan, “Christ Was Born For This,” and explore the roles of Christ as our perfect Prophet, Priest, and King. As always, you can follow along at SheReadsTruth.com, on the SRT app, or via email subscription (SheReadsTruth.com/subscribe).
Next, the She Reads Truth Holiday Gift Guide is live! We’ve been working behind the screens this fall on a handful of special treats for you and your friends, and you can finally peruse at our giftable goodies—for both Shes and Hes! Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the guide to find links for charitable organizations we love, and consider adding them to your gift-giving list this Christmas. Visit Giftguide.SheReadsTruth.com to see what we’ve been up to!
Inside the Gift Guide, you’ll find our first community reading plan of 2017, titled John: Come and See. The Gospel of John shows Jesus as fully divine—the promised Messiah, the Son of the Father dwelling among us for a time. Written from the viewpoint of one of Jesus’ closest disciples, this book of the Bible doesn’t just tell a story. It calls us to respond.
John invites us to come and see who Jesus is, and to discover how Christ’s life, death, and resurrection are the answer to all our questions, heartaches, and joys in this life. This is why John wrote his Gospel: “so that you may believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31). This 4-week plan begins January 2, 2017. Come and see!
So, to recap this good email of great joy, we have:
1) the First Sunday of Advent is THIS Sunday, 11/27 (we can’t believe it’s finally time!),
2) the 2016 SRT Gift Guide (with new goodies we know you’ll love!), and
3) our first plan of 2017—John—beginning Jan 2 (with a link to the John study book in the gift guide).
So much goodness! Friends, we are so incredibly thankful for you, and we cannot wait to begin another year of reading Truth together, every day.
