Laity, local pastors, deacons and elders are invited to an Advent retreat with Bishop Ken Carter on Tuesday, December 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Community of Faith UMC.
We will focus on the gospel of Matthew, the lectionary gospel for 2019 Advent through 2020. For those who do not preach the lectionary, Matthew is also a great resource for growing in discipleship.
The retreat will be in three movements:
- Identity: Becoming a Part of a Greater Story (Matthew 1. 1-17)
- Incarnation: The Best of All is that God is With Us (Matthew 1. 18-25)
- Epiphany: The Long Journey to the Place Where Christ is Born (Matthew 2. 1-11)
There will be times of silence, collaboration, conversation and lectio divina. Participants will also have an opportunity to develop their own plan of spiritual reading and prayer for 2020. Participants are asked to bring a Bible, a notebook and a 2020 calendar.
Space is limited to the first 70 people. Click HERE to sign up here today!
