A Community of New Hope


Current Events

Advent 2022:
Here i am send me


Learn the prophesy. All our lives we've heard that the birth of Jesus was predicted by the Hebrew Prophets of the Old Testament. Who were these prophets and what can we learn from them to help us celebrate Christmas today?


Kenneth Seeskin, emeritus Professor of Jewish Civilization and former chair of the Philosophy Department at Northwestern University will introduce us to these remarkable (and annoying!) men. 

Join us on Tuesday evening, November 29 at 7:00 p.m. to hear the professor and ask him questions for our first Advent discussion program. We will gather via Zoom:

The other three Tuesdays of Advent, on December 6, 13, and 20, we will focus on the Prophets Isaiah (actually, there were three Isaiahs) during our Zoom preparation for Christ's birth.

save the date: Friday, December 23, 1:00 p.m.
