Life can pull us in many directions, sometimes all at the same time. This SILENT Advent retreat will give opportunity to pause, ponder and pray around three great themes in the scriptures that have strengthened the people of God down the ages. Come and join us if you yearn to be faithful in confusing times, peaceful in stormy seasons, and people of grace when the world around is hurting.
