Special Episode | Discovering Advent

The seasons of the church year are meant to teach us essential truths of the spiritual life, offering us an opportunity to practice some of the key disciplines of our Christian faith together – in community.

The Advent season marks the beginning of the church year and while we have always provided reflections and gatherings for this time we are now offering an additional resource –  A special Discovering Advent podcast with Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Wiens. Listen below!
