The Advent/Christmas theme comes from the Christmas story in Luke 2:19, “Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.” Do you ever wonder what she was thinking, pondering, hoping? Could her son, Jesus, be the hope for the world? How would his life change the world of violence and division and hatred and abuse of power that existed in her time? What would that mean for her ordinary, everyday life?
Mary’s questions are our questions.
So, we’ve designed this season as an opportunity to think and ponder and hope anew around these big questions. Then, through our pondering, to imagine and become co-creators of the kind of world that Jesus came to create—a world of compassion, justice, love and hope.
Check out our full Advent calendar of events. We would love to see you this Advent season.
