Our Advent morning of prayer will begin as always with the story of the Annunciation, Angel Gabriel’s appearance to Mary and God’s invitation to her to become the mother of Jesus. As we ponder her “yes,” we will also listen for the “yeses” that we might be invited to say in our lives. As Meister Eckhart says, “We are all called to be mothers of God.”
We will have short presentations and guided meditations and some time for quiet reflection on Mary’s life and our own and the angels in our lives, both spiritual ones and human ones. Come and be “surprised” by God.
All are welcome at this free program.
