The seasons of the Christian year offer rich opportunities for pastors and congregations to deepen their encounter with the Scriptures, and to hear with greater attentiveness the Living God who speaks through them.

Drawing upon the Revised Common Lectionary’s curated Biblical texts for Advent 2022, these two days – together in Vancouver – will be a journey through the Sundays of Advent, leading up to the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What is a lectionary? It’s simply a collection of Biblical readings, organized to be proclaimed in communal Christian worship.

Whether you are a seasoned Lectionary preacher, or have never worked with it before, you are are invited to gather with fellow ministers in this encounter with the Advent Scriptures. Practitioners of preaching from all Christian traditions and denominations are warmly welcome, as well as seminarians and those preparing for preaching ministry.

Join the Canadian Bible Society’s Ambassador Rev. Dr. Andrew Stirling and pastors from congregations across BC and Yukon as we foster spiritual friendship and engage the Scriptures together.

Continental breakfast, lunch and snacks will nourish us for our time together each day. Free parking is available on site at West Point Grey Baptist, or on 11th Avenue.
