A People of Hope

A People of Hope

November 24

The Christian story the metanarrative of salvation history is shaped by biblical figures that continue to inspire us, guide our faith, and ground our hope and our lives as believers.  Inspired by the Jesse Tree, this course unpacks the Advent theme of hope as lived out by our forebears in faith.  Using Scripture, videos with Fr. Michael Himes, and essays by the late Fr. Raymond Brown and Dr. Colleen Griffith, we look at some of the people in Matthew's genealogy and others people of hope who readied the way for Jesus and for us.  With these stories in view, participants are invited to reflect on what it means to embrace and live out Christian hope today.
