An Invitation to Make Room for God During This Season of Advent
Retreat Director: Gavin Wark
What is it? This is a guided retreat you can do over a four week period from the comfort of your own home. The retreat begins with an on-line orientation session where we will introduce various ways of praying with scripture and images. Each week you will be given scriptures passages and resources for your own times of prayer and reflection. Themes you will explore from week to week include:
What do I long for?
What is God's invitation to me?
Making room for Jesus in the ordinary
You should plan to spend 45-60 minutes each day waiting before the Lord with the resources that are provided for the week. Some people will choose to break this time up into shorter segments during the day as their schedules dictate.
Participants will meet once/week online either with a small group or one-on-one with a director (depending on the number of participants) to reflect on what they are hearing in their times of waiting with the Lord.
If you have questions about the Retreat in Daily Life that are not answered here, please address them to the retreat director, Gavin Wark (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When does it start and end? The retreat begins with an on-line orientation session Sunday, November 27th at 7 pm, and ends with a closing on-line gathering on Sunday, December 27th at 7 pm.
Can I join for just a part of the retreat? We are asking participants to commit to the whole experience from the orientation to the closing gathering unless unexpected circumstances arise.
What is the cost? There is no charge to participate.
