The birth of Jesus into human history was the true fulfillment of the hopes and longings, dreams and desires of the people of ancient Israel. Through four conferences, we will consider the richness of the Hebrew Scriptures from Isaiah and the Advent Sunday Gospels from Matthew to help us better prepare for the Lord’s coming among us this year. Matthew’s Infancy story of Jesus reminds us to make Advent a time of peaceful trust in God's providence and to make Christmas a celebration in which we open our eyes, minds and hearts to the universal call of the newborn Lord. We will also consider the spiritual significance of Hanukkah and Advent when both faith communities draw on the symbols of candles and lights that shatter the winter darkness.
