2012 Advent brought a fascinating juxtaposition of science and faith, interweaving Advent themes with the search at CERN for the Higgs Boson.
We received insights from our members who are part of the scientific community (CERN) – while our pastor along with a very special liturgy helped us to think about how science and our faith come together. Terry even integrated the ‘sounds’ of particle collisions recorded at CERN into the whole scene.
Here, for the first time together, are the video records of that memorable Advent (taken from our 2012 media library). — For an overview, watch the first video “Advent Puzzle – the movie”.
