Series Companion for The Hopes & Fears of All the Years: Advent 2022

For your convenience, this material is also offered in printer-friendly form.

Introduction

What do you need to know about something in order to believe in it? Is it important that it is historical and factual? Does it need to be authentic and free of pretense? Should something bring about goodness and justice in the world? Does it need to be beautiful and inclusive? When it comes to believing in something - especially something as significant as Christmas - we all have a question that matters the most to us. And we’re not alone in asking it, either. This Advent, you are invited to join us as we consider how four significant questions have been engaged throughout the generations. In answering them, we will consider how Christmas addresses both our deepest fears and our greatest hopes!
