Around the Advent Circle: Spiritual Reflection Groups for Advent

Nov. 30 – Dec. 22, 2022
on Zoom

In western Christianity, the season of Advent is the time when we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ. Yet, it is also the time of darkness, a time when we are called to go inward and reflect. To help us make time for this important task, the Worship and Spiritual Life Ministry (aka Deacons) is offering two early morning spiritual reflection groups that will meet weekly on Zoom during this period. No preparation will be required. All you need to do is show up! We will be using reflection guidelines written by one of our FCCB members, Ann Naffziger, titled Around the Advent Circle. The groups will be led by Kerrie Hein.
