I’ll be in Charleston at the Grace Church Cathedral on December 7, leading the congregation in a reflection on the wonder of the incarnation. My book Incarnation: The Surprising Overlap of Heaven & Earth will serve as the basis for our reflections. As I suggest in the book, the church uses the concept of “Incarnation,” (from the Latin word for “in the flesh”) to help us understand that Jesus Christ is both divine and human.
The Incarnation is the grand crescendo of our reflection upon the mystery that Christ is the full revelation of God: not only one who talks about God but the one who speaks for and acts as God, one who is God.
Folks may find Incarnation a helpful read this Advent season. A short excerpt can found here, and the book can be purchased here.
This event will begin at 9 a.m. in Hanahan Hall (98 Wentworth St, Charleston, SC 29401) with light refreshments. I’ll make some comments which will be interspersed with opportunities for conversation and quiet reflection concluding at noon. Click here for more information on the event.
