Adult Formation in Advent

by fr randolph charles, priest associate

Our Advent/Christmas book of meditations this year is I Witness: Living Inside the Stories of Advent and Christmas, a Forward Movement publication. Below is a description of the book:

“Many of us have heard the story of Jesus’ birth, but have we lived inside it? Episcopal priest Kate Moorehead invites us to enter the story of salvation with our hearts and minds wide open, experiencing the miracle of Jesus through the eyes of witnesses: Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the wise men, and others. And Moorehead encourages us to bear witness ourselves – both then and now – to the marvel and majesty of a babe born in a manger, of Christ our King. These daily devotionals offer a companion through the seasons of Advent and Christmas and urge us to keep reading, keep listening, keep learning. The story of Christ’s birth can be both familiar and new in each re-telling. Come and see.”

The books cost $5 and are available in the parish office on weekdays and after worship on Sundays.

The Adult Formation Ministry Team invites and encourages all parishioners to devote 5-10 minutes daily throughout the seasons of Advent and Christmas for reading the meditations and quiet prayer.

We will continue to meet on Sundays at 9:15 and 11:45and on Tuesdays at 10:30 for those who want to share learnings.
