Advent is on the way! I thought you might like to try something different this year and join an online reading group that meets every Thursday evening.
What better way to practice the holy waiting of this Advent season than streaming weekly with some Wise-ish Nerds on the internet?
Each week Tripp and Bo will be looking at the liturgical texts for the upcoming week of advent and using a different theologian to dig deeper into the themes of the week.
Expect to encounter Jack Caputo’s discussion of the ‘to come,’ Catherine Keller’s Parabolic Christology, Kathryn Tanner’s incarnational Christology, reflections on Ebenezer Scrooge, New Testament fun with Borg, Wright, and Horsley & hopefully Tripp will talk Bo into reading his theologically revised version of ‘The Night Before Christmas’ in a deep sultry radio voice.
Each session will be at least 90 minutes, maybe 2 hours, that covers a bible episode and a theology episode, and available as a live stream or as a download afterward. We will post some readings for each week and will be taking questions before and during each session. We hope the mix of theology, bible and liturgical season makes this a sermon or small group leader prep session and for the many Deacons without a faith community a chance to find some online partners during the advent season.

Thursdays @6pm (pst) / @9 (est)
