Federated is offering book studies that are based on the book “Why This Jubilee-Advent Reflections on Songs of the Season” by James C. Howell. 

Music is such an important part of Advent and Christmas. Can you imagine Advent without "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"? How about Christmas without carols like "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Silent Night," and "Joy to the World"? In 24 reflections on well-known carols and Christmas songs, Howell explores the birth of Jesus, ponders the meaning of certain phrases from these songs and relates them to our daily lives.
