Come join us! For Adult Formation this year we’ll enjoy a rich variety of offerings via Zoom*: we’ll read and discuss a few books, watch and discuss a series of TED talks on faith and religion, and have a unique Advent study using Amy-Jill Levine’s recent book Light of the World. Please check this space regularly to see what’s next! The formation hour will begin at 9:00 am, which is a slight change from our regular formation time of 9:15 am. For the Zoom link, use our Contact Form to contact Rev. Tim Meyers and let him know you would like to join the discussion. See below for what’s coming up.
WHAT’S COMING UP:
For Advent we will explore and discuss the meanings of Advent and Christmas in the book Light of the World written by renowned New Testament Professor Amy-Jill Levine. This wonderful book will take us on a journey through first-century Judea and the background of the biblical texts that narrate the Christmas narrative. Each week in Advent (November 29 – December 20), we will read a chapter in the book and watch the accompanying video. Please join us, even if you don’t read the book, and be a part of our Advent study.
December 6 – Chapter 2
December 13 – Chapter 3
December 20 – Chapter 4
