Coming Up: Theology on Tap Returns!
Theology on Tap Returns on April 17!

Historian and memoirist  Carlos M. N. Eire opens the 2018 season of Theology on Tap with reflections on: "Transforming the Supernatural in the Reformation".

One of the most significant changes brought about by the Protestant Reformation was a redefinition of the relation between the natural and supernatural realms, which amounted to a redefinition of religion itself. How did this redefinition shape the various churches created in this era? How did it affect the Church of England? How does it affect us today?

Prof. Eire is the T. Lawrason Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale University and the author of numerous books, including most recently the magisterial Reformations: The Early Modern World, which won the R. R. Hawkins Prize for Best Book of the Year from the American Publishers Association, as well as the award for Best Book in the Humanities. He is also the author of the best-selling memoir  Waiting for Snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy, which won the National Book Award for Non-Fiction.

Join us at  7 pm on April 17 at: Carrie Nation Cocktail Club, The Beacon Room,  11 Beacon Street, near the State House.

Parishioners wishing to eat dinner first are strongly encouraged to arrive early and please inform the club that you are part of the Church of the Advent party for the evening.
Coming in May: The Walk for Hunger
Glorious Easter is still in our minds and Spring is almost here, which means that the  Annual Project Bread Walk for Hunger is beckoning!!  

Please consider joining Fr. Warren and many fellow Advent Parishioners on Sunday, May 6 th. This will be the 50th Walk for Hunger and at least the 35th Church of the Advent participation in the Walk, and most importantly, Fr. Warren's last Walk! He has been part of this great tradition, bravely walking many miles, over these last 25 years, so, if you haven't considered this before, please do this year!

Project Bread's financial grant supports The Church of the Advent's Tuesday Community Dinner, which is a vital part of the Advent's community outreach program.

Please consider joining us by registering as a walker or by supporting Team Advent with a donation. Our fundraising goal is $10,000.

Contact Suzi Briggs : 617-905-4871 or if you want to be a Walker and need help with registering.

Many thanks for your consideration and generosity on behalf of Fr. Warren and Team Advent.

Sunday's Collect
Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery hast established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ's Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
