 Description: Living and giving like Jesus and approaching Christmas differently and becoming transformed in the process are not new ideas, but they do form the basis of Mike Slaughter's book Christmas is not Your Birthday which this DVD and Leader guide are based on. In this five-week study participants will see the traps and discontentment of consumerism and experience the call of God to live generously to fulfill God's mission in the world. Sessions are about 13 minutes long and cover these topics:

Expect a Miracle
Giving Up on Perfect
Scandalous Love
Jesus' Wish List
By a Different Road

The comprehensive leader guide helps you facilitate a group study. This particular study is for adults but there is material for all age groups available through Cokesbury, so that a whole church can engage in this Advent Study. It is recommended that each participant have a copy of the book Christmas is Not Your Birthday to use in this study process. You may buy books through Cokesbury by calling 1-800-605-9403 toll free.
