Introduction to Advent - Rector's Forum
Advent is a season of great anticipation, both inside and outside of the Church. While the world around us shops, cooks, and prepares for December 25, Christians have their own way of anticipating the birth of Jesus. The season of Advent readies Christians for the birth of the baby Jesus at Christmas and also for Christ's second coming. In this course we will learn not just more about what advent is, but how it can change our lives.
The Forum will take place in the Chapel on Sunday's from 9am-9:45am, beginning Dec 3.
Advent: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Preparation and anticipation are in the air - and not just for gifts and meals - but for Christ to meet us anew in the holy season of Advent.
Episcopal bishop and teacher Susan Goff leads us through a meditation on Christ who came, Christ who comes, and Christ who will come again. She invites us to take on some practical and inspiring disciplines in this season, and to contemplate more fully what it truly means to prepare for and anticipate the newness of Christ dwelling in our hearts.
This will be an at-your-own pace online opportunity available beginning the 1st Sunday of Advent and lasting through December 24th. Look for an invitation to join right before Advent begins!
