This is a retreat series. We will begin with a Welcome email on Wednesday, November 22, and you will receive your email retreats on Saturday, Nov. 25, and on Dec. 2, 9,16.
The retreat will follow the Lectionary (RCL) readings and use the images and metaphors as entryways exploring our personal Advent experiences.
Don’t Go Back to Sleep – Mark 13:24-37
Sometimes Bare and Wild – Mark 1:1-8
Anticipation at the Threshold- Psalm 126
Let Go. Let Come – Luke 1:26-38
Each retreat begins with centering and settling, introduction to scripture, a brief reflection, evocative questions for journalling or pondering, a spiritual practice and Advent blessing.
- A Welcome Email on November 22th which helps you prepare to receive your first retreat.
- Four Email Retreats on the next four Saturdays.
- Within your retreat is a button where you can download and print your retreat.
Please note: All Prayer Bench Yearly Subscribers will receive this retreat. You do not need to order it.
