Online Epiphany Class, Mondays at 7 p.m.

Fleming Rutledge's Epiphany: The Season of Glory (Fullness of Time)

The feast of Epiphany and its following season are not as well observed as they should be. Many of us associate Epiphany with the visit of the Magi but don't know much more about it. In this short volume, priest and theologian Fleming Rutledge expounds the primary biblical texts and narrative arc of the season, inviting us to discover anew "the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." The gang from Crackers & Grape Juice will moderate a discussion and Q/A from Fleming's book, which you can purchase here.

The class meets weekly on Mondays at 7 p.m., Jan. 15 - Feb. 5.  Join in live at annandalechurch.com/mondayclass .
