Virtual – Advent Series

Although it is not possible to host our regular Advent luncheon this year, we do however, have a rare opportunity to announce a series of Advent talks from four Australian biblical scholars from Yarra Theological Union, a College of the University of Divinity. Each will reflect on the extraordinary richness and beauty of the Advent readings.

Speaking to us from their own area of expertise will be:
Dr Janina Hiebel, who specialises in Prophetic literature, and will guide us through the First Readings that come to us mainly from the prophet Isaiah.
Dr Mary Reaburn NDS, who is an expert in the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament, and will draw out the richness of the Responsoial Psalms.
Dr Chris  Monaghan CP, author of the Friendly Guide to Paul, will explore the longings and hopes of the early Christian communities found in the Second Readings.
Assoc Prof Mary Coloe PBVM, a world recognised expert on the Gospel of John and author of the Friendly Guide to John, will draw out the significance and meaning of the Advent Gospels.Each week this group of trustworthy guides will work together shedding light on each of the readings for the coming week. This is a perfect opportunity to grow in your understanding as disciples should not to be missed.
