Growing: Time Outs and Retreats
Half-day Advent Retreats 2017
Where Hope and Fear Meet.
Anxiety. Uncertainty. Fear.
Like the fingers of fog over our coastal hills, they threaten to settle in the valleys and crevices of our lives, obscuring our hope.
Recent experiences heighten our awareness of fear: earthquakes, floods, firestorms, threats of terrorism and war, political unrest. Add to that our individual fears.
We long for genuine HOPE.
The Christmas carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” reminds us that in Jesus’ birth, both “the hopes and fears of all the years are met…”
Join us for an Advent retreat where we will explore ways our own hopes and fears might be met in Jesus this season:
The retreat will include teaching as well as time for guided reflection and prayer. Registration includes all materials and a continental breakfast.
8:30 am – 12 Noon
November 29, at Holbrook Palmer Park in Atherton
December 7, at Cedar Grove Community Church in Livermore
