Year B: God's Presence
Where is God? Why can't I see Him?
What was Jesus doing before he came to earth? Where is He now?
How is God with me today?
Children are often curious about the presence of God, and adults often have difficulty knowing how to assure children of the Lord's reality and constant presence. From the presence of the Lord at Creation to the current gift of the Holy Spirit indwelling every believer, the Lord has been tangibly involved in the world for all time.
Year B traces this presence from Creation through the Old Testament including Moses and the Burning Bush, the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, and Elijah and the prophets of Ba'al. Each lesson relates to how the Spirit is present in the lives of believers all the time, everywhere. Special emphasis is given at Advent to valuing the incarnational presence of Christ. Year B includes a longer overview of the Early Church following Pentecost.
