This retreat on two Thursday evenings focuses on Christ’s two comings celebrated in Advent.
Facilitators: Gabrielle Johnson & Glen Argan
Amidst the indifference and harshness of the world, faith in the two comings of Christ enables us to live in hope. The two comings reveal God as transcendent and as Christ among us. While we wait in hope for Christ’s second coming, our belief in the incarnation gives us the eyes to see God’s glory in the beauty of ordinary events. In those events, we can say, with Mary, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord.” This retreat will draw on our personal resources and the Advent-Christmas Scripture readings so we can live with a more intense hope.
