The Advent of the Prince of Peace

December 2, 2016 - December 4, 2016
West Park NY


Friday, December 2 – Sunday, December 4, 2016

Led by Rev. Martin Smith

In this weekend of pondering, prayer, and silence, we will seek to know Jesus again as the “Wonderful Counselor, the Prince of Peace,” and honor our calling to be peacemakers with him. How does Christ want to be our Counselor just now, for finding peace within ourselves, peace in our dealings with others, peace at the heart of our witness in the world? In our meditation, we will seek to hear his wisdom and receive the peace that is unlike anything the world can give.

Fr. Martin L. Smith is well know throughout the Episcopal Church and beyond for his explorations of contemporary spirituality through workshops, retreats and preaching, and widely read books, including The Word is Very Near You, A Season for the Spirit, Reconciliation, Compass and Stars, Love Set Free, and recently, with the Rev. Julia Gatta, Go in Peace: the Art of Hearing Confessions. He has over thirty years of experience in training and supervising preachers and spiritual directors. Now retired, he makes Washington, DC his base for a roving ministry of spiritual formation and teaching.
