Diarmuid O'Murchu Weekend 3rd - 5th December
We Await the Coming – Advent as Subversive Memory
Advent recalls the birth of Jesus in our world, while also reminding us God’s future coming at the end time. In this weekend conference, Diarmuid O’Murchu will introduce new insights on the meaning of Advent, following the guideline of Scripture scholar, John. D. Crossan: While we are waiting for God’s intervention, God is actually waiting on our collaboration. The challenges to Christian faith are quite substantial and through input, reflection, and dialogue, will be explored over the weekend".With increasing numbers logging-on to Diarmuids on-line events for us, the weekend is sure to be a sell-out.Mark a space in your diary for what will be a great inspirational Advent retreat.Here's the link to a great weekend of inspiring wisdom......
