THE WORD IS VERY NEAR YOU.. Advent is a season to attune “the ear of the heart” to the various ways in which God addresses us and calls us into companionship, and to be word-bearers in the context of our busy lives. Our time together will allow us, through directed meditations and personal reflection, to attune our hearing to the word God addresses to us in the “now of this mortal life.

Coffee at 9:30am, Simple Eucharist at 2:30pm in the chapel and lunch will be provided.
(There is no cost for the event) ” RSVP to Anita at aburke@stthomaswhitemarsh.org
