Advent, the season of longing and preparation that precedes our celebration of Christ's birth, often catches many of us unprepared and overwhelmed.     

How might that change if we took a few hours to pause and listen before the season begins?  

Join me Sunday, November 26th at Still Waters Retreat House in Carlisle, PA for a few hours of quiet and prayer. This will be a time to rest and prepare, to ask God what question or intention might be yours to carry in the season of longing and wonder.  

Although the retreat will end at 5 pm, all participants are welcome to stay after for a simple meal in the retreat house.  In your RSVP, please indicate whether you plan to stay for dinner - I hope you will. 

When: Sunday, November 26th from 2-5:00 pm
Where: Still Waters Retreat House, 
              501 West Slate Hill Rd.
              Carlisle, PA 17013

Cost: Donations welcome to pay for leadership and use of the facilities.  

RSVP: by Wednesday, November 22nd by emailing
