Ever wish you had a better way to organize your thoughts around a worship series? Want help connecting the lectionary texts for Advent (Year A) with the theme, What Can’t Wait? We created this resource to help you bridge the gap.

Like biblical commentary, this guide offers you seeds of ideas, theme connections, questions for deeper study, and real-world intersections. For each text, we’ve included: suggestions for how to connect the scripture to the What Can’t Wait? theme, guiding questions for deeper study, quotes for inspiration, and links to articles and books that bring new perspectives.

We encourage you to use this guide as a starting point for your text study each week. Consider mapping out your ideas in our accompanying sermon-planning grid. This is also a great resource for teaching Sunday School or small groups, as the guiding questions are great for group discussion! We hope you’ll use the artist statements in our Advent Visual Art Collection as well as our Advent Words for Worship as companions to this guide in your worship planning.
