AD ADVENT JOURNEY | Today, December 11, and 18 9AM – 10AM | Hutton Hall & Zoom

Advent is a season of preparation—a time to prepare our hearts and communities for the coming of Christ at Christmas and imagine the possibilities of God’s Kingdom come to Earth. 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. To do so, visit THIS LINK. However, you are invited to drop in and participate even if you cannot attend all four weeks. Join us on Zoom.
