About the Webinar:
What does it look like for you to move into a new calendar year? The happenings of 2020 have altered aspects of each of our lives. The year has changed certain logistics of how we live and how we gather. As you begin again, carrying the items of the past—the pains and possibilities—have you considered what you need in order to thrive?
What if Christ’s revelation to you and your community can be witnessed through slowing down and practicing what you need? The incarnation impacts the possibilities of how we live, love, and look ahead. In this season of Epiphanytide, participants came together to contemplate our year that we might best prepare for it.
During the webinar, participants were invited to engage with a media clip and Scripture to look back, to look forward, and to look within. The vision is that our contemplation would allow us to walk away with insights and commitments to ground us in moving forward. Let us do the work that prepares us to receive in whatever ways Christ comes.
