Behold is an old-fashioned word we rarely hear these days. It's not in most modern translations of the Bible. Yet Pamela Hawkins says this word softens the edges of her heart. "I cannot say this word without moving, without extending and lifting a hand, palm open, toward the object of my attention," she remarks. Enter Advent this year with an attitude of curious expectancy and trustful anticipation. Linger for a while and pay close attention to the meaning of the season as you focus on a single word each week, pray the beautiful prayers and hymn texts, and try various forms of prayer. You can follow all the spiritual practices Hawkins suggests or choose the ones that most capture your attention. The spiritual practices include reflection silence prayer reading scripture reading or singing of hymn texts Christian service and action You will learn how to use the following prayer methods: Praying with Images Silent Prayer Prayer Beads Compline (Night Prayer) Behold the Word with new eyes, new ears, a new heart, and a sense of new possibilities. Let Pam Hawkins encourage and help you behold the "news of great joy," Christ the Lord, who is coming to make all things new! 4-week study for individuals or small groupsIncludes Leader's Guide
