Advent is a time for re-centering, for quiet, for preparation, for listening. All of which, the world needs, we need, to counter the Frantic Crazy of these days.
Here at St. Mary’s we hope to offer you tools, and create a space, for you to do what you need to find your balance.
So here’s some thoughts:
Advent Prayer Challenge – Ever been to a yoga studio where they do these “yoga challenges” where you sign up to do yoga each day for a month? Well, this is like that, except that a bunch of us at St. Mary’s are pledging to pray or meditate each day of Advent. It only takes 27 days to make a habit! Join us!
