Our Second Online Advent Small Group Discussion Topic:
Seeking Jesus, the Advent of
Justice and Peace 
(Facilitated by Simpson Seminarian, Alyssa Keifer)
You are invited to join Alyssa and wrestle with a biblical text, ask questions, and engage in small group dialogue with one another through the season of Advent. Use this time to slow down and not rush through the end of 2020, but rather, be intentional in the preparation for the season. No formal knowledge required, but you may want to have a Bible close by!
