The Hope of Advent: A Passion for the Impossible
with Frida Berrigan and Fr. Terrence Moran
Friday, December 6th, 7 pm - Sunday, December 8th, 10 am
The season of Advent is full of impossible images: the lion lies down with the lamb, the weapons of violence are shattered, a God becomes a vulnerable child. This weekend, through presentations, quiet reflection, and ritual, we will renew our hope in the impossible vision of Advent and revive our energy to live out of this vision. “Our Advent hope calls on us to write, with our lives, a new history, the history of lives lived in justice and peace.” - Elizabeth McAlister
