During this morning retreat, we’ll gather around the story of Elizabeth and listen for the invitations to watch in wonder as God’s work unfolds within us and around us. You’ll have the opportunity to create a luminary with an icon of Elizabeth and Mary that you can use to companion your Advent waiting days. You’ll receive a list of supplies to gather for the luminary activity. Our time will be rich with prayer, music, storytelling and reflection.
