Walk this way: An Advent Journey Towards Jesus
Thursdays 26 Nov – 17 Dec, 10:00 am – 11:30 am (online)
Zoom meeting ID: 868 0721 9031
Walk this Way is a four week program using videos and discussion questions from the St Francis College Short Course series.
Journey is a word often used in the context of Christian learning, or faith education, and we love to travel! Of course, the season of Advent is full of references to travel. Take Mary’s mid-pregnancy and hasty trip to visit Elizabeth, and the most famous Christmas journey when Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem to participate in the census. Jesus is born on a journey.
And what an intriguing journey we are on – we look forward to the arrival of a defenceless infant when so many anticipated the advent of a mighty and strong vanquisher. We learn about the ministry of a radical who offended the ruling elite and was put to death for sedition and treason when so many expected a great warrior who would defeat their enemies. We anticipate the stirrings of hope in the resurrection when Jesus’ closest friends were in despair, and so the journey goes.
‘Walk This Way – an Advent journey with Jesus’, aims to enrich Christmas preparation – travel with and learn from the Gospel stories, from others who have walked this way before, and from your fellow walkers.
Climate for Change
(Finished! Was Tuesdays 8 Sep – 6 Oct 2020, 10:00 am)
Climate for Change seeks to strengthen hope through a determination to work with others to create a future for all. Our hope lies in the knowledge that God has not abandoned creation but rather has called us all to help restore and respect it.
Jeni Nix, a Third Order Franciscan, will lead these studies which have been produced by the Anglican Board of Mission as a contribution to the global ecumenical Season of Creation.
