Advent Quiet Evening
Wednesday, December 12
Led by The Rev. Matt Wise
Slow down. Breathe deeply. And wait. These are some of the most difficult things for us to do in our busy, on-demand lives. Often times, they aren't comfortable and they seem counter-productive. So, come join us for a contemplative and quiet evening as we try and sync the pulse of our lives with the pulse of the season of Advent.
This will replace the Advent Quiet Day previously scheduled for 12/1. Register for the Advent Quiet Evening online.
