Advent 2017: all earth is waiting

Advent is a season of expectation and longing; we are waiting not only for the birth of the Christ child in Bethlehem, but also for the revelation of God’s love and the restoration of this earth. This year at Trinity, we will look at familiar Advent themes, such as hope, joy, love, and peace, and what they might mean for us to be caretakers of the earth.
