Be Ye Doers of the Word and Not Hearers Only Start Doing

Advent Retreat December 7

December 7, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Michaux House and the Chapel

So much of the preparation for Christmas is secular – programs, parties, decorations, shopping – and it’s lovely, fun, exciting, and expensive, but it really has little to do with our belief in the Incarnation and the story of God’s radical love for humankind.

How we keep Advent and how we prepare for Christmas will determine how open we are to the love of God in Christ and how ready we are to receive the prince of peace in our midst. We will seek to create a special space for prayer, silence, and time so that we can heal our hearts and rehear the nativity story and its power.
