a contemplative advent retreat

with Susan Phillips, PhD

We extend to you this invitation, in the words of South African minister, politician, and anti-apartheid activist Allan Boesak: So let us enter Advent in hope, even hope against hope. Let us see visions of love and peace and justice. Let us affirm with humility, with joy, with faith, with courage: Jesus Christ––the life of the world. 

Even when our lives and the world seem tumultuous, God invites us to enter the Advent hope that Jesus Christ is with us today, as well as yesterday and tomorrow. Join us in a quiet retreat focused on noticing how you hear God and receive that hope in your own life.
