The Advent season is a restorative time. It is a season for discovering fresh hope in the liturgical texts and in the consoling reassurance God has already made good on the promise of redemption.
Longing for God
Thursday, November 30, 2023
As the deer longs for running streams…my soul longs for You, My God!
This half-day online retreat calls participants to be in touch with the longing for God we each experience, the desire for friendship, and a loving intimacy with the God who loves us unconditionally.
As we pause to get in touch with the deepest longings of our hearts, we walk with the people of Old Testament days as they longed for a Savior.
- What were they really longing for?
- What images spoke to their hearts?
- How did they express their longing in prayer?
With song, prayer, silent reflection, times of sharing, and brief presentations, we will open up the Scriptural riches of this season of longing for the coming of God anew in our lives, finding hope in New Testament stories of
- Promise and Fulfillment
- Simeon and Anna
- Zachary’s Canticle
The retreat will take place online using Zoom. The cost is $30 (tax included).
