Starting This Sunday: A Series for Advent

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. As I have often done in the past, I will be doing a seasonal series. This one will be on the themes of Advent through Epiphany. In light of what many of us have experienced and felt over the past year I am going to explore the meaning of spirituality as "resistance" to the ways of the world. I don't believe we are to withdraw from the world, but rather engage with the world (in, not of the world) with the Word in mind. The ten-part series will be:

1st Sunday, Dec. 3: Hope as Resistance

2nd Sunday, Dec. 10: Love as Resistance

3rd Sunday, Dec. 17: Joy as Resistance

4th Sunday, Dec. 24: Peace as Resistance

Christmas Eve, Dec. 24: Humility as Resistance

Christmas Day, Dec. 25: Light as Resistance

Sunday after Christmas, Dec. 31: Sacrifice as Resistance

New Year’s Day, Jan 1: Sacrament as Resistance

Epiphany, Jan 6: Revelation as Resistance

Epiphany Sunday, Jan 7: Proclamation as Resistance
There will be more of an introduction on Sunday. Join me in preparing for the season as a sign of Good News for all.
