9:30 AM - 2:30 PM

Led Anne A. Simpkinson

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits for Him, in His word is my hope.

                                                                               Psalm 130:5

Take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle, and stop, center, pray and explore the Advent themes of waiting and long.  This day is aimed at creating a space in which to connect with the true meaning of the season. We will work with relevant psalms, journal and "retreat" into silence through periods of Centering Prayer. 

Bring a bag lunch if you wish to participate in a silent meal. 

No prior experience with Centering Prayer necessary.

Cost: $15
