Stephen came up with an idea to create a series for advent that could be adopted and used by all of the churches in Galway. This included sermon themes, artwork, and a devotional book. In the end Seven churches committed to doing the series together.
The devotional will be given to out on the first Sunday of Advent (December 3rd) and will contain thoughts from people in each of the seven churches. Each one will coincide with the sermon that was preached that Sunday before. Stephen is learning to use Adobe InDesign to create the book and our summer intern Ben McGue and Stephen took a lot of the photos for the book.
We are looking forward to it all coming together and are encouraged by the other churches' excitement to use the book and series. It's fun to be able to cooperate with our brothers and sisters in the other churches in Galway.
