The practice of lighting Advent candles symbolizes the process of increasing candlelight each week in the face of increasing darkness, or shorter daylight, each week.
Using the four Advent candle themes—hope, love, joy, and peace—this three-week, small group experience offers four different prayer practices. This group invites participants to explore breath prayer, examen, praying scripture, and intercessory prayer. The goal is to encourage one another to pray intentionally during a season so frequently filled with anxiety, stress, and grief. The hope is that our renewed prayer practices may lead us into a new year that continues Advent themes. No experience necessary.
The Zoom experience begins Monday, November 27 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. and continues on December 4 and 11. Facilitators are Mary Cauble and Bonny Roth. Register here. For more information, contact Tom Scott, at email@example.com.
