Wednesday Mornings, December 4, 11, 18 | 9:30 AM | Building B, ROom 125
Gather for a lesson led by Rev. Christina Hildebrand and Rev. Sandy Heard
Join us as we walk through our church-wide Advent series, Light of the World, by Amy-Jill Levine.
We will trace the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation, and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, the star of Bethlehem, and the flight to Egypt. This 3-week study through Advent is a rich and challenging learning experience for small groups and individual readers alike.
