During the Advent and Christmas season, we often become so wrapped up in attending every Christmas party and buying presents that we forget to pause in the stillness of the darkened living room, only lit by the glittering tree. We get so busy running around that we forget to relish in the quietness of a tranquil December morning to listen for God’s grace in the wind. The Prayer Labyrinth is the perfect opportunity to take that moment we all so desperately need to allow God to move around and within us.
Come join us for this mid-December mini-retreat for a time of quiet, prayerful reflection — and enjoy a Sunday afternoon “oasis” in the busy-ness of the season as we move through Advent into Christmas.
The labyrinth is a special prayer path the church has used for many centuries (ours is based on the one built in the 1200s at Chartres Cathedral in France) to help deepen one’s awareness of God’s presence and guidance. This ancient practice of contemplative prayer is being rediscovered as a powerful way to slow down, quiet the mind, heart, and soul – and to prayerfully listen for God’s guiding presence.
This special come-and-go opportunity throughout the afternoon led by Dr. Len Delony, FUMCFW’s Associate Pastor of Spiritual Formation, will provide you with a meaningful space for contemplative prayer and soul-care in Wesley Hall.
We will begin this mini-retreat with an opening time of introduction, prayer, and special music beginning at 1:00 pm. All are welcome to come anytime and stay as long as you want, between 1:00 & 6:00 pm.
If you have any questions or would like to send in special prayer concerns, contact Dr. Len Delony at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 817-339-3880.
