Advent 2021

Incarnation Annunciation

We are part of the epic story of God’s love coming into the world. We are the continuation of the story seen in Scripture. Our role is to faithfully improvise as we carry out God’s mission in the world based on the storyline of the New Testament.

Join us for Advent through art, music and poetry

Starting November 28th we will begin our walk through Advent exploring the Incarnation Annunciation through art. On Sunday nights at 5:00 PM we’ll be inspired by theology through the arts and centered by our own art making responses.

If God’s incomprehensibility does not grip us in a word, if it does not draw us into superluminous darkness, if it does not call us out of the little house of our homely, close-hugged truths…we have misunderstood the words of Christianity.

Karl Rahner
