Please join us on Saturday, December 12th from 9am to 11:30am for an advent quiet retreat. Using the words from Psalm 46 “Be still and know that I am God,” we will find time for peace, quiet, and calm in the midst of this chaotic world.
Join us over Zoom as we open with morning prayer and silent centering prayer. In the middle of the morning we will move into individual time for personal reflection, prayer, meditation, art or walking. As we close our time together, we’ll come back on Zoom for noonday prayer. We’ll be providing resources to help guide this time together, but also encourage you to bring any additional tools you use to find peace and calm. Our daily prayers will use the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer.
We also know you may be experiencing “Zoom fatigue.” If you’d like to participate but don’t want the retreat to include any “screen time,” you may choose to sign up for the “Non-Zoom option” when you register. If you choose that option, we’ll send you some materials and liturgies you can use on your own to create some time for quiet reflection and prayer.
