SIMPLY ADVENT (4-6 DEC 2019)
Advent is a season that offers the gifts of joy and anticipation. However, Christmas is often celebrated without the true meaning of the Advent season. We usually get so bogged down with the festive shopping, partying, decorating and presents that consumerism is more common than wonderment. To help us get back on track, this retreat is an invitation to shift your focus to experience and savour the essence of the Advent, to prepare your heart for the coming of the Christ Child and the coming King.
The 3 day 2 night guided silent retreat will also help you pause to recollect the birth of Christ in your life and then to anticipate His coming again. You will also be guided to recognize and respond to the presence of God through His Word and prayer.
Date: 4 - 6 Dec 2019
Venue: LifeSprings Canossian Spirituality Centre
Jesus Christ, Our Light (13 DEC 2019)
Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining. ~ 1 John 2: 8 (NIV)
An invitation to come away and contemplate on Christ as the Light who came and will come again in the fullness of God’s time. May we make time to bare our souls to God, humbly asking him to come in the quiet of our hears for the grace to live the new year, savouring the light of his holy and indwelling presence.
Date: 13 Dec 2019, 9.30am - 5pm
