Space to Listen: Reflecting on the Gospel of Luke with Brent Coffin
- Date: Sunday, December 5, 2021
- Time: 12:30pm–2:00pm EST
- Location: Zoom (Information in Description)
Who’s controlling the narrative today? Is it the Right or the Left? FOX or MSNBC? Or is it actually no one? Amidst all the clamor and competition, where do we find the space to listen deeply to our own narratives of where we are now, how we got here, and where we are hoping to go next?
The Gospel of Luke is just one of countless narratives. Yet for us, it is the primary text of the new Christian liturgical year beginning this Advent. Luke’s is a story we’ve all heard before—the virgin birth, angels, shepherds, etc. But what if Luke’s narrative of our brother Jesus can be for us a living space—space for listening more deeply to our own narratives, and to those of our companions, as together we listen for what God is calling us and enabling us to be and to do?
Brent Coffin will offer some initial reflections on the Gospel of Luke as narrative space for discerning how God is calling us in our own unfolding narratives. The talk will follow worship on the second Sunday of Advent, December 5. After Brent’s remarks, there will be time for your questions and comments, as we begin the conversation.
