Rediscovering Advent 2015

November 23, 2015 - November 29, 2015
Tatamagouche NS


Nov 23 – Dec 8, 2014 Mon 10:00 AM – Mon 4:00 PM $50.00
This retreat will help participants to find the new in what is otherwise a very old story. As we unpack the same well-worn seasonal decorations, it’s easy to fall back into a routine approach to the birth of Jesus every year. Let us instead challenge ourselves to look beyond the familiar routine and search for something new in the age-old story. We will explore new ways to sing, preach, and pray on our Advent journey. Participants can look forward to singing together, creating new stories, building and sharing ideas to help reinvigorate and inspire your spirit for the busy season ahead.

Program Cost: $50 (tuition, lunch)
Please register at least 2 weeks in advance to secure your place in this program.
