Into the darkness comes the Light of life. As it arrives, our hopes and fears are exposed. Jesus asks us, “Why are you so afraid?” A candle burns as we walk with Him into the dark. Light grows, until we arrive at the place where God dwells. There, fear is stripped away and we are exposed and unashamed in the presence of radiant grace and truth.
Almost every character in the Christmas story had to face their fear. Maybe it’s time for you to join them! This is a season of ending and new starts. Take time to prepare your heart for the coming of Emmanuel. Start with a Prayer Retreat. Sit with the question. Let Christ’s light shine and transform you!
Register soon for this one-day retreat! Led by Bronwyn Spilsbury, experienced pastoral host for pilgrim souls, this will be a day of journey and renewal. Space is limited and the beauty of St. Helen’s Church awaits you. Cost: $65 with lunch.
