“Here I Am” — The Witness and Legacy of Mary
Some people call her “Theotokos,” the God-bearer. Others champion her as a model of holy femininity — ever sinless, ever virgin, ever mother. To some, she is a prophet, and to others, an intercessor. At the Sunday forum on December 3rd, join Debie Thomas to explore the rich history, legacy, and theological significance of Jesus’s mother, who spoke the bold words we’ve chosen as our Advent theme: “Here I Am.” When and how did Marian devotion begin in the Church? Why has Mary been so controversial throughout history? What does our Episcopal tradition have to say about her? What role might she play in our lives? Come and find out!
