Join us for Advent as we create space for reflection, prayer and community. The Advent Reflection Circle will be a hybrid book group & reflection group. You’ll be invited to create a personal daily reflection space and meet (virtually) with this community group (10-15 people) each week during Advent.

The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before…So, stay. Sit. Linger. Tarry. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder. There will be time enough for running. For rushing. For worrying. For pushing. For now, stay. Wait. Something is on the horizon.

A quote from Jan L. Richardson's, Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas 
Wanton Gospeller Press, 1998

Enter into a personal reflection journey with Jan Richardson’s book, Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas. This book offers a daily reflection (1-2 pages) for each day of the Advent season. Jan describes this book as a devotional guide for pilgrims awaiting the birth of hope and so we’re invited to ponder and wonder in an intentional journey through the season.

Join a virtual reflection circle each week. These virtual community gatherings will include guided meditation, poetry, song and communal reflection on the weekly theme from Night Visions. You will receive an email with reflection prompts each week before our virtual time together.
