When you think of Advent and Christmas, what comes to mind?
Mangers? Sheep and oxen? Snow and hot chocolate? God with us?
All good answers. But we’ve talked about that stuff before! Let’s face it, after years and years (and years) of Advent, we could be tricked into thinking we’ve mined the depths of the season, and there is nothing left to discover.
But this, of course, would be a huge mistake… because there is always more to discover.
Advent is about the anticipation of GOD taking on FLESH. God coming entering into God’s creation, taking on our skin, purifying our world, and birthing something new in the midst of it.
And there’s something… deeply sexual about the whole thing!
So what if we explore that for Advent 2015? What might we learn about our relationship with God, with one another, with the creation and with our own bodies?
And how might it fill us again with wonder!
Wonder at the Divine Mystery of the Incarnation!
A Few Important Notes:
1) Sunday December 6th we will be meeting at 6pm, not 3/3:30! MacNab had a previous commitment booked for the space. We will meet 6-7pm on Sunday December 6th. Click here for all the details!
2) Wednesday December 16th we are hosting a “My First Hamilton Christmas: Potluck and Party!” event. This is an open potluck meal specifically focused on welcoming our new Hamiltonians to the city, be they new arrivals to Canada, or just moving to our city from somewhere else in the country. But we want everyone to attend! Click here for all the details!
3) Christmas Eve we will be joining MacNab Presbyterian for their Christmas Eve gathering at 7pm! In addition to being a beautiful gathering, it is a great way to connect with them further, and continue to build a good partnership.Click here for all the details!
