An Offering of Spiritual Life Services at Ghost Ranch, this advent retreat is for pastors, worship leaders and liturgical artists.
As you prepare to lead Advent worship in your congregation, join us at Casa del Sol Retreat House at Ghost Ranch, for this time of creative respite and immersion in God’s Word. During our time together, we will expand and extend our lectionary “C” exegetical resources into the aesthetic realm. Using the language of the arts we will break open the texts to offer fresh vision to congregational worship.
We will learn to build corporate rituals together and make visible the wisdom of scripture. We will study, write, play together; we will eat, drink in, and express our delight in the God who made visible the Word in the human form of our Lord Jesus. Through sharing with one another, practicing new and traditional forms for prayer, reflection, and expression, you will return home prepared to design a spiritually nurturing Advent and Christmas for your congregation.
Space is limited in the Casa del Sol Retreat House at Ghost Ranch. To accommodate as many pastors and church leaders as possible, all rooms will be shared, affording us an opportunity to retreat together in Christian community.
