 TEENTEXT High School First Sunday of Advent
A New Joy
This year's Advent curriculum breaks the TeenText mold just slightly. We've moved away from the lectionary selections that are a part of our December curriculum to focus on the birth narrative from Luke's gospel. Through this narrative we explore the major themes of Advent and the ways in which Christ's birth brings us a new understanding of these themes. Throughout the study, the film, A Charlie Brown Christmas, is used to illustrate these themes. All of the clips we reference are available on YouTube and a synopsis of the film is available here (
You may want to purchase the film to view in full with your group as well. Each of the lessons also highlights a traditional Christmas carol/hymn which teens are likely familiar with but may not have ever really examined closely. Our hope is that these resources, along with the text and questions, will help teens see the Advent season with new eyes.
