Fully Human, Fully Divine is an invitation to an embodied Advent. Over the course of four weeks, it encourages us to embrace the experience of the Advent season fully, with our whole selves and remember that Jesus showed us what it meant to be both fully human and fully divine. It challenges us to live right here, right now as we await the birth of the Christ Child, the embodiment of God’s presence in our midst.
During a season that can often become stressful and overwhelming, we are rarely permitted time to be present in our own bodies. We forget that our bodies are blessed and consecrated. God did not create the body to bring us doubt or shame; instead, God created us as living, breathing human beings who have the ability to live wholly—body and spirit together.
In this book, the author, Whitney Simpson, suggests practices that will help us focus on the body God created and embrace what it means to be fully human.
Accompanying the book is the online experience, in which author Whitney Simpson and Upper Room staff will guide us in practices intended to turn our focus to the bodies God created and embrace what it means to be fully human. Together, we will learn to let go of external demands and give ourselves permission to be present as we listen for God in our lives.
