"From Nazareth to Bethlehem to Egypt: The Flight of the Holy Family", A Four Week Advent Series, Sundays, Nov 24-Dec 15 (10:10 AM):
This Sunday morning series (between services at 10:10 AM) will reflect on the ways that the experience of the Holy Family and their travels to Bethlehem and then flight to Egypt can help us faithfully respond to contemporary situations of families suffering dislocation and homelessness. Dr. Steven Tomlinson (professor of Leadership and Administration at SSW) will introduce a model of theological reflection on Nov 24, followed by an introduction to Foundation Communities on Dec. 1. On Dec. 8, we will hear from St. Julian's Pilgrims about their experience at the border. Finally, on Dec. 15, Dr. Steve Bishop (professor of Old Testament at SSW) will connect these themes to the scriptures. For questions, email Tony, our Theologian in Residence.
