Sundays 9:30-10:15 am
This class of mostly young and middle age adults will join back together, after being apart for the last 18 months, for the Advent season. Come and enjoy catching up with each other and discussing parts of Kate Bowler's Advent devotional, The Season of Almost.
"As the world tilts toward another Christmas, we see how the pandemic keeps surprising us with its ability to stalk and destabilize....And yet and yet and yet. The long dawn of Advent begins, for now is the season of an ever-growing and ever-kindly light—the one that lets us see reality more clearly"
-Kate Bowler in The Season of Almost.
Handel’s Messiah has stirred listeners’ spirits for hundreds of years. While listening to Part I of the oratorio, we will consider the scriptural texts that form the lyrics and how Handel crafts his own gospel with the texts he chooses and the ways he sets them to music. The class will meet for the first three Sundays of Advent, November 28, December 5 and 12 at 9:30 in the Thompson Parlor and on Zoom. In-person attendance is encouraged and will enhance your listening experience.
