As Christmas and the holidays approach, Christians experience the season of Advent as a time of expectant waiting and preparation. This year, will present a special series of Advent meditations and conversations that will reflect on the question: “What Are We Waiting For?” 

On each Thursdays in Advent, listeners are invited to join in a live discussion at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom, with one of the leaders on that week’s Advent theme. Attendees to the gathering will be able to ask questions during the online conversation.

Also, each Monday during Advent, the church leaders will release an ecumenical Advent meditation in which they will focus on one of the four Advent themes and address challenges and opportunities facing the Canadian churches.
