Advent in Plain Sight
Hybrid class meeting at Central & on Zoom
Classes based on Jill Duffield’s insightful book, Advent in Plain Sight. Cultural expectations and the commercialism of Christmas tempt us to forget that we are, in fact, preparing for the advent of Christ. Imagine if this Advent we slow down instead of speed up, ponder instead of purchase, and look for the divine at work in all things around us and in us. Join us for an Advent that unfolds right in front of us.
Online participants should stay on the Zoom Fellowship link.
