The Journey of Advent
December 9 @ 8:00 pm – December 11 @ 1:00 pm
The stories surrounding the birth of Christ present us with many journeys.
Physically, Mary travels to visit her cousin Elizabeth; Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem for the census; the Magi undertake the long journey to find the King.
Spiritually, Mary and Joseph each undergo their own journey as they grow in understanding of how God is asking them to participate in the birth of Jesus.
Considering stories such as these, this weekend of retreat offers us the opportunity to reflect on our own Advent journey – a journey of hope…. of understanding… of deeper relationship to God. And in so doing, the weekend also invites us to reflect on our role in birthing Christ into our world today.
