Why is waiting such a key part of spiritual formation? How do we prepare our hearts for Jesus’ promised arrival? What does “God with us” mean for the church today? Writers from CT’s 2022 Advent devotional, The Promised One, will explore these and other questions during “Welcoming the Promised One,” a free CT webinar on Wednesday, December 14 at 2 p.m. EST.

Hosted by CT’s print managing editor, Kelli B. Trujillo, this live online event invites you to ponder both the joy and mystery of the Advent season. The panelists, including pastors Glenn Packiam and Adriel Sanchez, bestselling author Dorena Williamson, and New Testament professor Madison Pierce, will draw from their essays to reflect on the many layers of Advent—from the baby in the manger to the Savior on the cross to the returning King of Kings.

“Throughout church history, Advent has been a season of anticipation,” writes Trujillo in her introduction to The Promised One. “This Advent, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, may we deeply contemplate Scripture’s promises of who he is and what he came to do.”
