Waiting in Advent with Megan Griffiths
Tuesday, December 13
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM DT
Zoom (Registration required)
Making the Familiar Strange
Join Megan Griffiths, Mission Advancement Coordinator at the Tri-Faith Initiative, for this session of Making the Familiar Strange as we explore the origins and traditions around the Christian celebration of Advent. She will examine the scripture readings and observances that take place during the season of Advent. We will join in conversation to discuss the theme of waiting within each of the Abrahamic faiths.
Making the Familiar Strange is an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that inspires people of different religious and nonreligious backgrounds to read the same text together. Rather than providing answers, creating arguments, or shutting down conversation, Making the Familiar Strange gives attendees an opportunity to investigate and share different perspectives on the same texts.
While not required, the program is best if you have access to the stories, which can be through a physical copy or online copy of a Bible, Tanakh, and/or Quran.
Tri-Faith Initiative events are recorded and archived on our YouTube Channel.
