For Christians, Advent, the four-week season before Christmas, is a time of anticipation and holy waiting. Practically speaking, it can also be a time of stress with presents to buy and food to cook and parties to attend. How can we focus on the hope of the season as we prepare our home, our family and ourselves for Jesus’ birth?
To help, Good Shepherd will offer a Quiet Morning from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 9 in the Chapel. You are invited to drop-in anytime during those hours. No sign-up is required. The theme is “Clearing The Way” and there will be soft music for reflection using materials and activities that we will provide and you can take home. “Quiet” means it will be a meditative time to leave enough space in the busy holiday season to pay attention, to listen, to wait, to be surprised, and to ask ourselves, “When I wake up on Christmas morning, how will I be different?”
