This Advent course is based on All Earth is Waiting by Katie Dawson.
All Earth Is Waiting invites readers to explore the familiar Advent themes of hope, preparation, joy, and peace with the heavens and earth in mind. Through her powerful and personal reflections, author Katie Z. Dawson calls us to consider how all creation longs for the coming of Christ, taking seriously the notion that the good news of Christ is good news for all the world. Anticipating in Christ’s birth the reconciliation of the heavens and the earth, Dawson highlights the responsibility to care for this earth in preparation for Christ’s return.
This five week course is a Bible study which examines themes within the scriptures that discuss creation’s desire for the return of the Christ. Each session will include bible study, prayer, questions for reflection and discussion, and a focus for the week that will enable you to engage a specific act of creation care that will help apply the week’s lesson.
Thursdays in December plus January 6, at 3pm. Sessions last about 75 minutes.
The class will be in-person at the church. We request that participants wear a face-covering and do not attend if they are feeling unwell or have recently been in contact with the Covid virus. If you wish to attend by Zoom please let Jay know in the office (email@example.com).
Led by the Rev. Caroline Hall
