Sumners Series Lecture: Mary's Voice

Join us for this Sumners Series lecture, Mary's Voice: A pre-Advent evening exploring the meaning of Christmas through Mary’s unique perspective, by international author, speaker, and theologian the Rev. Dr. Amy Orr-Ewing

St. John the Divine
Hall Life Center

Dr. Amy Orr-Ewing is an international author, speaker, and theologian who addresses the deep questions of our day with meaningful answers found in the Christian Faith. She is the author of multiple books including the bestselling ‘Why Trust the Bible?’ She is a regular presenter on TV, radio and has addressed politicians in the Speakers Rooms and Chapel at the UK Parliament, on Capitol Hill, and to West Wing staff at the White House. She holds a doctorate in Theology from the University of Oxford.

Her new book is 'Mary's Voice'. Dr. Orr-Ewing writes, "A woman’s voice has been preserved for over two thousand years; this is something precious and profound in and of itself. But Mary shares with us how the arc of history has been shaped by the coming of God as a man. Her account is historical and detailed, but it is also laden with meaning and prophetic nuance Mary’s perspective is unique, profound, domestic, beautiful, good, and true. The earthiness and the wonder of the incarnation are both captured here. And so, as Christmas rolls around again and another year passes, we have the opportunity to recapture some wonder as we remember the birth of Christ and to take time to reflect and dwell on the meaning of Jesus’s birth. Mary’s Voice is an invitation to prepare our hearts in a time called Advent, in anticipation of Christmas when we will celebrate and mark the birth of Christ into this world."
