Advent in the New Universe Story

You are invited to join us in Advent (don’t have to attend all 4 weeks)

This Advent program provides an opportunity for Christians to deepen their understanding of the Christmas/ Incarnation reality in the context of the New Universe Story. We now know that creation began 13.8 billion years ago, that the expanding universe contains billions of galaxies, that we and all creation are new each moment and intrinsically interconnected. We no longer live in a world with God “above.” This requires some basic re-thinking of the Christmas story! The Incarnation is a Mystery that a lifetime of contemplation would not exhaust. More and more theologians and others are writing about the transitions needed for its mutual integration with cosmic history. These pages contain just a few of their insights.

The four weeks include:

1. New Consciousness, New Christian Understanding
2. The Cosmos Prepares for New Life
3. Evolving Understanding of Humanity’s Place in Creation
4. Incarnation Revisited

When: 6:30 pm on December 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd (drop-ins welcome)
Where: Samaritan House, 1143 East Pender St., Vancouver
