Thank you for signing up to participate in St. John’s Advent quiet retreat (the “without Zoom” option!).
A few days before the retreat, we’ll send you a “toolkit” of materials that we hope will help you find peace, stillness, and connection to God. We encourage you to set aside time in your schedule for a time of retreat this Advent, and to find a space in your home that is free from screens, distractions, and stressors. Look through the tools we’ll send, or use others you may already have, to find ways to rest in God’s presence throughout Advent.
If you need any additional materials or support in preparing for this time of quiet and prayer, please let us know. We have “worship boxes” available that contain a piece of fabric donated by St. John’s members that can be spread out to create a “base” for your altar area, a candle, and three cards with images on the front and prayers on the back. We will happily deliver one to you if you’d like one.
Again, thank you for signing up to be part of St. John’s Advent quiet retreat. Even though we won’t see you on Zoom, you are part of the community of prayer that day and always. Know that we are holding you in prayer.
Lisa, Rex, and Elizabeth
