A Contemplative Advent Retreat
Co-sponsored by New College Berkeley and First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley
Christians are called people of the Way (Acts 9:2): We follow the Way, live with the Way, and prepare the Way. Advent is an opportunity to reflect on this adventure into which God invites us. Carve out time in the press toward Christmas to prepare your hearts for walking the Way in the year ahead. Join us for a morning of prayer, reflection, and readying ourselves to continue our great pilgrimage with Christ.
