The Diocese of Maryland’s Christian Formation Council is offering an advent video series as a personal or group formation opportunity – Theological Refection to Go! It’s a great way to see God acting in your and in the life of the world through culture, our religious traditions and scripture. Take a few minutes to reflect on each video below with attached questions; schedule a Facebook watch party with your friends or church community or have group discussion or water cooler conversation at work. We will post one video on Facebook each of the four weeks of Advent. All four are posted below and on the Christian Formation in the Diocese of Maryland Facebook group. This week’s film is a Maroon 5 music video. Enjoy!

If you are a formation leader in the Diocese of Maryland, clergy or lay, paid or volunteer, please request to join the Facebook group. Share your voice and ideas!
