About The Event
The existence of angels has long been debated, and yet, many human beings still believe in their existence. Why? Come and explore the presence, meaning, and message of angels as expressed both in scripture and in fiction, and decide for yourself. We will travel with angels from Eden, to heaven, to Mary, to Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem and consider what message they had for us then and still have for us now as we prepare for Christ’s coming this Advent and Christmas.
