Advent Online Retreat - Tomorrow Morning

“Shining God’s Light in the World” Led by the Rev. Denise Schiavone, Deacon​ Saturday, December 5th from 9:00-11:00 a.m.

This online retreat will be a morning of respite and restoration. Exploring how we nurture the light within to allow us to shine forth in the world, we will share time in active reflection, discussion, and exercises. We’ll also participate in a guided meditation session, led by guest facilitator/yoga instructor Danielle Beyers. The retreat will conclude with an online Eucharist.


One of our hopes for this contemplative morning is to compile a Pandemic Journal, to explore how this 10-month period of semi-isolation has affected our lives. This retreat is a time to connect with each other expressing our concerns, our hopes, and our need for joy in our lives.


We encourage all interested individuals - both parish members and visitors - to participate. Home communion kits are now available for no-contact pick up at the church. They’re in a marked box in the breezeway between the Christ Church office and Old Brick, so stop by at your convenience and take one; we’ll be using these for Eucharist at the close of the retreat.


For planning purposes, we would love to know if you plan on attending. However, a spontaneous decision to attend is more than welcome. If you'd like to join us, email us at info@christchurchcolumbia.org and we'll send the Zoom details to your inbox.


We hope you’ll join us for this special day of centering, contemplation, and connection. Please have handy writing materials (pen/paper or your computer) and a comfortable blanket nearby, if you’d like.
