Wednesday, December 21

Experience how Christmas is observed in each of the four Gospels in this study written by Cynthia M. Campbell, author of Christmas in the Four Gospel Homes. During our time together, we'll reflect on the gospels' distinctive perspectives on the birth of Jesus and the incarnation, and we'll compare these four sacred narratives to homes that Christians visit.


These conversations will be casual and last approximately 45 minutes. Feel free to eat dinner as we chat. We hope you’ll join us when you are able; attend as few or as many sessions as your schedule permits.

Holiday PJs welcome (kid-friendly, of course!), with a bonus for the footie kind.
