“Stay alert! You do not know when the time is coming!” The season of Advent invites us to be alert God’s activity in the world – the signs, wonders, and coming promises. As Christians, we hold that Christ’s coming is something that didn’t just happen a long time ago in a far away place, but is instead something that unfolds before us, around us, and within us every day. Naming and claiming this unfolding is the work of translation, and it is a spiritual practice, particularly in this highly secular age and place. In this experiential retreat, we’ll tap into our theological imaginations using the signs and symbols of Advent as we engage the intersections of scripture, culture, and daily lived experience. This workshop is free, but registration is required. Led by the Rev. Canon Abbott Bailey. If anyone would like Spanish translation, please let us know by December 6th so we can arrange for it – Contact Adia Milien, adiam@diocal.org.
