St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar offers 3 Advent programs


In the weeks leading up to Christmas, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar invites the community to join in three Advent programs that can enrich the season:

• 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays (Dec. 10 and 17), “The Journey of Faith of C. S. Lewis”

One of the great writers of the 20th century, Lewis embarked on a search for truth that led him to Jesus Christ. In this three-week series, we’ll explore his journey, and what we can learn from it, led in part by St. Peter’s Father Munoz. On Dec. 10, explore Lewis’ fiction, and on Dec. 17, his spiritual writings. The Wednesday evening series, held in the parish hall, begins with a free Soup Supper at 6 p.m., followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m.

• 10:30 a.m.-noon Wednesdays (Dec. 10 and 17), “Is it the End of the World?”

The Rev. Martha Anderson will present on Dec. 10, and author Gertrud Mueller Nelson will be here Dec. 17. Discover how Advent is not just a waiting period for Dec. 25, but is also the longing for “the fullness of time.”

• 10-10:50 a.m. Sundays (Dec. 7, 14 and 21), “The Coming of Christ in Advent”

Meet in the parish hall for a look at some of the Scriptures, prayers, theologies and customs surrounding this season of expectation, preparation and choices preparatory to welcoming the Christ.
