Theme: PONDERING LIGHT. “You are the light of the
world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one
after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket,
but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the
house. In the same way, let your light shine before
others…” (Matthew 5: 14-16) In these times of chaos
and uncertainty, when division, hostility and fear run
rampant, we will consider how we stay open, flowing
and living in the light. What is invited as followers of
Jesus? During this season of Advent, as we remember
the coming of Light and Love in Jesus, we will ponder
light and how we are called to be light-bearers for the
Leader: Patience Robbins is a spiritual director,
teacher of prayer and loves praying with others.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
