What are you curious about? In what areas of faith and life do you wish you knew more? How do we integrate faith into the breadth of human experience? Once a month, Church of the Advent wades into the deep end to look at the world through a different lens: the lens of the gospel. Join us as we talk about worship, history, saints, literature, psychology, and more over the next few months!
liturgical WorshiP: Ancient faith with a fresh voice
Taught by: Pastor Ken Robertson
Details: SUnday, January 25th, 8:30-9:45am
Description: Bowing, robes, dresses, chalices, colors...what does all the stuff we do on Sunday mornings MEAN anyway? Join Pastor Ken as we walk through the Sunday morning service to discover the riches of gospel-saturated worship, and how that worship translates into our life outside the church.
Ignatius of loyola & Imaginative Prayer
TAUGHT BY: Deacon Cindy Hamilton
DETAILS: SUNDAY, February 22nd, 8:30 - 9:45am
Description: Ignatius of Loyola, one of the heroes of the faith from the 16th century, experienced a profound spiritual conversation and fostered a "school" of discipleship that can be a tremendous blessing to us today. Many of Ignatius's insights came in his use of "imaginative prayer," which helped him see God's hand in many different areas of life and most clearly in the gospel texts. Join Deacon Cindy as she teaches on Ignatius's life and the insights God's Spirit gave him into prayer: you'll even practice imaginative prayer during the session!
March Madness: Church History, Basketball, and Finding your place in History
Taught by: Greg WIdmer, MDiv Student at Denver Seminary
Details: Sunday, March 29th, 8:30am - 9:45am
Description: Pop quiz - how many Christians' names do you know that lived after the New Testament and before your lifetime? Probably not as many as we should! Knowing our place in the history of God's people can draw us to wonder, warn us to avoid the mistakes of the past, and give us models for our faith journey. Join Greg Widmer as he sums up all of church history - using the framework of a basketball game, of all things! - in a little over an hour.
