For the first week, we discussed "No Matter What," had some fun with Mariah Carey and Star Trek, and learned other A words for Advent.

For the second week, we reviewed Rituals down by the Riverside and referenced a number of Rebels, including from Star Wars.

For our final week in this series, we will Dissect the Descent of a Deity and Dare to Delve into the Depths of Devotion of the Divine, which Draws us Deliberately from Dogma and Doctrine to Discovery and Disruption, as well as from Domineering Denizens to Demonstrative Decolonization.

Join us remotely as we listen, ponder, cry, laugh, worship, play, reflect, and share -- practicing together that lovely Lutheran both-and -- mourning and celebrating the wonder and chaos of this season of anticipation and waiting. Jill Beverlin, Director of the ELCA's Coaching Ministries, and Jason O'Neill, Senior Administrative Support for ELCA Coaching, will facilitate this sincere and humorous three-week series on how we survive and prepare ourselves to journey through the seasons of Advent and Christmas in 2023, and beyond.

You are invited into community to be witnessed AS YOU ARE and to leave with encouragement and affirmation.

Who can you expect to join us for this third week? "The Son of Man," a variety of writers (mostly not men), and "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" including a cameo appearance by "The Man"

*** We will be taking a break for the following week (December 27) and will return on January 3. ***
