Preparing to Become Beloved Community
Advent Faith Formation
December 4, 11, 18 9am | Hutton Hall and on Z_o_o_m
Advent is a season of preparation—a time to prepare our hearts and communities for the coming of Christ, the Almighty God who came among us poor and homeless—a stranger and a child. There may be no better time to reflect on how we embrace the Holy One who continues to draw near to us in the neighbor, the stranger, the refugee, or the one who seems most “other” to us.
Beloved Community is a vision of the possibilities of the Reign of God in our lives as we work towards growing loving, liberating, life-giving relationships across the human family of God. Following in the footsteps of Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King, Jr., the Episcopal Church invites all to explore the long-term possibilities of healing across difference, reconciliation, and justice.
During the four Sundays of Advent, you are invited to join the clergy and our youth for a sacred time of learning, storytelling, and listening. Our themes will include our own experiences of social difference, peace, forgiveness, reconciliation, truth-telling, and the possibilities of a community shaped by the love and concerns of God.
Registering is strongly suggested so that we can adequately prepare. However, you are invited to drop in and participate even if you cannot attend all four weeks.
