Fierce Love: An Advent Study

December 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 21, 2021

Join the Middle ministers for a rotating Advent series, using Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis’ new book Fierce Love as an Advent text to pair with traditional devotional Scriptures. In her book, Rev. Lewis talks about how love begins with true love for oneself, then gradually expands to include love for your posse and the entire world. This arc pairs naturally with the Christmas story—celebration of an in-breaking love that begins in a particular location but soon expands to shake every unjust foundation.

Together, we’ll gather on Zoom to hold these texts together. Please pre-order your copy of the book if you haven’t already, so you’ll be able to follow along week-to-week! And reminder: If you get a season pass to our monthly Freedom Salon series, you’ll get a copy of the book for free!

Tuesday, November 30: Chapters 1 – 3—Loving Yourself with Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis

Tuesday, December 7: Chapter 4 – 6—Loving Your Posse with Rev. Darrell Hamilton II
