West End United Methodist Church

Advent Mini Retreat

Start the Advent season with an experience that seeks to connect you with your whole self, both your humanity and the spark of divinity that God has given you.  Join us for a mini-retreat led by Whitney Simpson, author of our Advent Devotional, Fully Human, Fully Divine:  An Advent Devotional for the Whole Self. Over the course of three hours, Simpson will discuss the Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love outlined in her book. She will also lead us through contemplative practices and mindfulness techniques that engage our entire bodies and help us to be present with God as we savor this time before Christmas. This retreat is designed to be accessible for both beginners and the most practiced contemplatives, and is appropriate for people of all physical abilities. We invite you to fully embody the gifts of this season with us!

Cost for the mini-retreat is $10 per person. Scholarships are available.  Free childcare is also available upon request by November 30.  To request a scholarship or childcare, contact Erin Racine at eracine@westendumc.org.
