In Silent Stillness: A Contemplative Advent Retreat

December 2, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The season of Advent is a season of faithful waiting, a time when we prepare our hearts to receive the gift of Christ’s birth. Yet with the many demands on our lives and the noise of consumer messages about Christmas surrounding us, it is often hard to tend to our deepest spiritual longings.

To support you as we enter into this poignant moment in the church year, the Board of Adult Education invites UCCH members and friends to pause for quiet prayer on the morning before Advent begins.

The forms of contemplative prayer we’ll practice and explore together include silence, written reflection based on an Advent version of the Iganatian examen, walking an indoor labyrinth, and praying with images of the Madonna and Holy Family.

Don’t worry, there will be time to talk, too, and light snacks will be offered.

Childcare will be available upon request.

There is no fee, but please register by emailing Susan Steinberg – ssteinberg@unitedchurch.org.

Led by Susan Steinberg and Nancy Jones
