Experience Some Quiet Time This Advent

Christmas is approaching!!  Are you frazzled?  Between an ever-growing shopping list, neighborhood parties, and school concerts for your kids or grandkids, it's easy to forget the season of Advent.  Don't fret!  Good Shepherd invites you to take a few minutes on Saturday, December 9, anytime between 8:00 am and 11:00 am to visit the chapel and reflect in a quiet space.  Stop by on your way to the mall and take a quick break from the commercialism of Christmas.  You are invited to stay as long as you like and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.  

Reflections and devotions will be available for you to read and take home to share with your family and friends.  We will have a booklet using paintings as prayer, Alternative Advent Calendars to mark the day-by-day journey by giving and sharing, contemplative mandalas, and a traditional display of  "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" ornaments.  Come and see!

What better way to greet the crazed, holiday rush than by purposefully slowing down in anticipation of the true gifts of Christmas?
