|“As we prepare our house for the coming Christmas season, we would also prepare our hearts for the returning Christ. You came once for your people, O Lord, and you will come for us again.”- “A Liturgy to Mark the Start of the Christmas Season”
from Every Moment Holy, Volume I
Every Tuesday of Advent, Lori Ferrell or Elizabeth Forshee will lead a ten minute Lectio practice using scripture. This week, Lori uses Luke 1:26-28.
Join us this Friday for the first of two Advent Retreats
The themes of each retreat is related to when they occur :). Because December 1st is near the beginning of Advent, you will lean into the theme of Making Room. Lori describes it this way:
“This retreat offers an opportunity to pause and consider how we can make room (hold space) in our lives during a busy time of the year. We will engage in contemplative spiritual practices and creativity to help us reflect, and then have a time to share with the group what is stirred in each of us. You are welcome to participate in any way that feels comfortable for you. My hope is that you will feel encouraged and inspired to make room for noticing your loving Immanuel during the Advent season.”
Pauses often don’t happen, but they make the rest of life all the richer. Invest in Advent pauses by purchasing one of these resources here.
