    Diarmuid O'Murchu Weekend 3rd - 5th December

    5:00 pmHolland House

    Holland House is delighted to announce a weekend in person with Diarmuid O'Murchu this Advent

    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.
