Waiting for the Light – An Advent SoulStream Day Retreat
Saturday, December 2, 2017
A facilitated day retreat offering worship, instruction, periods of silent reflection and prayer, and voluntary group reflection.
It is often a struggle to wait, especially when we’re waiting for good things to come to us or for bad things to come to an end. Yet a posture of waiting is a hallmark of our life with God. The context of Advent provides a rich medium for our exploration of worship and contemplative practices that not only redefine what it means to wait but can reorient our expectation toward the One in whom “the hopes and fears of all the years are met” — God-in-the-flesh, Jesus Christ.
SoulStream partner John Lunn and Julee Botting who are on the leadership team at Marineview.
