  • Adult Study: Advent Songs of Waiting

    What can Advent waiting teach us about pandemic waiting? Are there ways that “doubling down” on Advent might actually help us endure the other stuff? On two successive Mondays, December 6 and 13 ( at 7 p.m. on Zoom), we invite you to a conversation about how these two experiences, Advent waiting for Christ and pandemic waiting, might be related.

    To stimulate our thinking, we will focus on the words to some cherished Advent hymns.
