Come and explore the Gospel of Matthew! This Advent we will begin Liturgical Year A. We will be reading from the Gospel of Matthew on Sundays. When and how did Matthew write? What forces shaped his thoughts and theology? What makes Matthew’s Gospel unique? How does Matthew’s Gospel portray Jesus and his disciples? What questions will you bring with you? Join in the journey from the Crib to the Cross, Resurrection and beyond starting Wednesday, September 4th through Wednesday, October 16th.
