Christmas season is often about beloved traditions and routines, but the first Christmas all began with an unexpected and unsettling surprise — an angel of God visiting a young woman on society’s fringes with news that she would bear God’s own Son! What do you do when God catches you off guard? Who is this mysterious Spirit who works impossible things? This Advent let us learn to expect the unexpected.

Did you seek God’s will for that big decision? Did you have a transforming encounter with God in worship? These are the questions contemporary Christianity has taught us to ask. As important as they are, Scripture often focuses on a different question: what’s the posture of your soul? Drawing upon stories from Genesis and what the early church called the "seven capital vices," we’ll explore God’s vital work of character formation.
