Waiting, Watching, Listening: An Advent Retreat

Sunday, November 29, 2020 | 4:00pm

“Advent: the time to listen for footsteps - you can't hear footsteps when you're running yourself.” Bill McKibben

On this first Sunday in Advent, slow down and give yourself the gift of being fully in the present moment with this afternoon retreat.  Periods of reading, meditation, and silence invite us to wait, watch, and listen for the stirring of the Spirit in ourselves and in the world. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage, this retreat is offered by members of the Center volunteer community who will guide and ground us in this season of expectant preparation. A Zoom link and password along with any relevant materials for the program will be sent to you before the program.

Advanced registration is required; registration closes at noon EDT on November 29
