Savor the spiritual gifts of Advent and Christmas with The Upper Room and author George Donigian.

Lingering in the seasons of Advent and Christmas allows time to deepen our sense of awe and wonder. In Days to Come takes us from Advent through the twelve days of Christmas and on to Epiphany. George Donigian offers reflections on Bible passages, church history, John Wesley, modern prophets, hymn writers, and composers. Writing from the unique perspective of his Armenian Christian heritage, he enriches our celebration of the incarnation of Jesus Christ.

The six sections contain thematic introductions, four meditations, prayers, and questions for individual and group reflection. The eCourse moves from the hope and promise of Advent to the fulfillment and mission of Epiphany.

This is not your typical Advent study. It's ideal for individuals and groups looking for a colorful, practical, and engaging experience for this season.

  • All essential content from In Days to Come.
