Digital Advent Retreat

Welcome to the 2021 Digital Advent Retreat

This Advent, LIRS invites you and your community to join us in taking a break from the busyness of the season to take a deep breath, reflect, and pray. Split into weekly parts, this Digital Advent Retreat includes prayers, reflections, and cross-generational activities.

Advent comes from the Latin word Adventus which means arrival. 

Wherever you are, begin with a moment of silence, creating space and inviting God to open your heart. We welcome you with open arms to this Digital Retreat.

A PRAYER FOR ADVENT:

Lord Jesus,

Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do and seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day,

We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.

We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.

We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.

To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!'

Amen.

- Henri J.M. Nouwen
