Advent Offerings

A Special AfterWORDS Program
An Ecological Crisis and A Moral and Spiritual Challenge

Every Sunday in Advent, 12:15pm
Pray Think Love House

Please join us at AfterWORDS for a conversation about Laudato si, the encylcical letter from Pope Francis, “On Care for Our Common Home”, and how individually and communally we can more fully love God by more fully caring for God’s creation.

Led by Rick Kohut, we will read and reflect on sections of this important document.
Our weekly themes, drawn from Laudato si, will be:

 The Beauty of Creation
 The Ravages of Sin on Earth
 Action for Healing
 Education and Spirituality for Conversion



We will pray with and study the Magnificat (the prayer of Mary) in Luke’s Gospel (1:46-55) in the midst of our Advent expectancy.
Come during the three Wednesdays of Advent
to make Mary’s Song our song.
December 4, 11, and 18, 7pm at the Pray Think Love House
“Courage in the midst of vulnerability. Joy illuminating the bleakness. Love emboldening and empowering the weak, raising them out of obscurity into the center of a new world flowing from them, a world of empathy and embrace expelling enmity and exclusion. This is the miracle of a young girl bearing God to the world – the miracle heralded in the Magnificat.
