Quieter Advent Service
Fri, December 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Is the “rah-rah” and commercialization of Christmas just too much for you to bear this year? Feeling a little blue? Know someone who is going through a loss? Come yourself and invite others to experience our candlelit Quieter Advent Prayer Service on Friday, December 7th at 7:00 pm at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Granite Springs. A simple supper will be served ahead of time. No need to bring anything. Just show up and be nourished in body and soul.
The Quieter Advent service is a service of prayer and traditional Advent hymns wherein we pray for those we love (and perhaps have lost) and where we experience the power of Advent but in a softer way. No demands for happy-happy at this service; this service lets us feel all our feelings and invites us to lay them in the loving arms of God. It’s perfect for those who find the hyper-commercialization of the secular Christmas season just too much to bear.
All in the community are warmly invited to attend.
