Event description

Description

Advent is often swallowed up into the forced cheer of “the Christmas season,” but it has a theological character all its own, one of eschatological hope and preparation for the second coming of Christ the king, mighty to deliver and save even and especially when we find ourselves trapped in “the bottom of the night.” As we pray in the collect for the Third Sunday in Advent: “Stir up your power, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

In this study day, come and walk through the lectionary texts for the four Sundays in Advent with two of our church’s most prominent preachers and teachers, the Rev’d Fleming Rutledge and Dr. Joseph Mangina. Our study day leaders will expound the biblical texts, reflect on their theological import, explore the rich hymnody and liturgy of the season, and spend time in conversation with us as we prepare for the advent of our Lord. Whether you are a working preacher looking for new insights into old familiar texts, or a lay disciple of Jesus searching for the voice of the Lord amidst the noise of the holiday season, come and be blessed by spending a day together to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the biblical texts for Advent.
