Joyful Exiles: Life in Christ on the Dangerous Edge of Things (James Houston)
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 our heart for the coming of the Christ Child and the coming King. The 3day-2night 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 recognise and respond to the presence of God through His Word and prayer.
