Advent Retreat in Daily Living: Preparing the Way of our God
Advent is a time of waiting, but a time of active waiting. It is a time during which we prepare ourselves to welcome the Christ child into our hearts and home.
This Retreat in Daily Living is designed to aid in our time of “active waiting” by inviting us to pray with the unfolding of God’s plan to become human. During this retreat we will reflect on some of the Old Testament narratives that foreshadow the Incarnation as well as the portions of the Gospels of St. Matthew and St. Luke that prepare for the coming of Christ. It will also invite us to reflect on the particular ways we need God to be with us during this time of year.
In a Retreat in Daily Living, participants commit themselves to a half-hour of prayer each day and go about their daily lives as usual. Prayer material relating to the theme of the retreat is provided for each day. In addition to a daily period of personal prayer, the participants in the retreat will meet for an hour each week. During this time they will share their experience of prayer in small groups and Professor Stabile will offer input on prayer and some of the dynamics of this type of retreat experience. She will also provide prayer material for each day of the following week. Each session runs from 12:30-1:30 and a light lunch will be served. This retreat is designed for those beginning to pray in a personal way as well as for those who have been praying for years.
Dates: Monday 11/28, 12/5, 12/12, 12/19
Location: Law School Room 242
As lunch will be served, please RVSP to Bethany Fletcher at email@example.com.
