Online Advent Study Series Begins Dec. 2!
Advent Study: Light of the World by Amy-Jill Levine
Begins Wednesday, Dec. 2nd at 7 p.m. or Sunday, December 6 at 10:00 a.m.
In her book, Light of the World, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. We'll join her as she traces 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, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.
Please note: due to holiday schedules, there will be no classes on Nov. 25 & 29, Dec. 23 & 26, and Dec. 30 & Jan 2.
Join us on either Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. or Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. This series is not tied to the current sermon series and you do not have to have attended previously to join. While you are you welcome to join us for both days, please note that Sunday's class is a repeat of Wednesday.
Attending is easy! All you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone with video camera capabilities and access to the internet.
