Home for Christmas – Tales of Hope & Second Chances

This Advent Study will be CO-facilitated by Jessica Mays and Pastor Steve on Wednesday Evenings, 5:30-7pm, Location TBD & Zoom link option will be available. Anyone is welcome to join. Please call Jessica (970-242-4850 staff directory option 9) or email her at jessforministry@outlook.com by November 15th if you would like a book. Home for Christmas brings inspiring stories of hope and second chances into the Advent season. Author and pastor Justin Coleman matches real life stories of struggle and triumph to the Advent themes of hope, love, joy, and peace to show how the light of Christmas shines brightly even in hard times. Each chapter lifts up a scripture reflection alongside tales of men and women who reflect on the Advent themes with love and longing. Throughout each of the four chapters and the accompanying DVD for a small-group experience, Coleman captures the stories of formerly incarcerated men and women as they find work and opportunity through Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, California. These men and women share their holiday memories and experiences in light of the hope and new life they’ve experienced at Homeboy.
