Princeton Seminary Professors Offer Advent Webinars for Congregations

Princeton Theological Seminary’s School of Christian Vocation and Mission is offering a two-part webinar for congregations on Sunday evenings December 2 and 9 at 7:00 p.m. EST on preparing for Advent.

Dr. Ellen Charry, professor of systematic theology at the Seminary, will speak on December 2 and Dr. Dennis Olson, professor of Old Testament, will lead reflections on December 9.

Dr. Charry will help participants identify ways of reclaiming the contemplative intention of Advent in the frenzy of “the Christmas season.” Dr. Olson will look at the Old Testament texts of hope and promise assigned for the four Sundays of Advent in the Revised Common Lectionary for Year C.

This webinar will be live streamed free of charge to churches that convene a group to watch. Make these two evenings part of your educational programming for Advent! Or join with other congregations to watch!

We hope you will share this with your congregations in your presbytery or synod enewsletter and on your web site.

All participating churches need a computer with a reasonably fast Internet connection, good speakers, a digital projector, and a screen. Contact Seraphim Danckaert to sign up.
