Advent Study: Mary Oliver and the Poetry of Advent
Mondays @ 2:00 p.m.
(video available after each session)
December 6, 13, and 20
The word ADVENT means arrival.
It’s a time for waiting and preparing,
opening our hearts and minds to welcome the Christ child anew.
Poetry can help us as we wait
The best poems help us notice things
and feel things we might otherwise miss.
They take us from the depths of despair
to the heights of hope
and everywhere in between
Using the Facebook Live platform,
we will let scripture and Mary Oliver’s poetry be a guide
to enrich our experience of the season.
Grab your favorite Bible and the poems
(on-line or in the book Devotions by Mary Oliver.)
Let’s make our way to Bethlehem together.
