Take a break from the hustle and bustle and join us for this day of prayerful preparation for the season of Advent. In the morning, create your own personalized Advent wreath to take home with you for use in your individual or family devotions. In the afternoon, explore creative Advent practices based on the book, Mandalas, Candles & Prayer: A Simply Centered Advent by Sharon Seyfarth Garner. Let go of the stress of the season and embrace how coloring mandalas, lighting candles, and contemplative prayer can keep us centered in the light of Christmas this Advent season. Coffee & pastry, and lunch are included.
