Advent Retreat: God Disguised as Your Life

Often, the last place we look for God is in the humdrum of our everyday lives. And yet, as author Paula D’Arcy reminds us, this is precisely where God is revealed to us.

St. John’s Advent Mini-Retreat is designed to help us to pay attention to God’s presence and action in our lives. Our gently paced morning together will include guided meditation, collage, silent prayer and reflection, journaling and optional sharing.

Facilitator: Deacon Patt Moser

Date: Saturday, December 3
Check-in and coffee: 9:30 AM
Program: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Pre-registration is required: Contact deacon@stjohnschicago.com

Advent in Narnia

Waiting & Wonder: Advent in Narnia with Heidi Haverkampain-author-photo

C.S. Lewis’s novel for children, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, is also a story for adults— a story about what it might look like if Christ appeared in a different world than ours: the land of Narnia, “where it’s winter, but never Christmas.” Come to St. John’s on November 30 to hear Heidi Haverkamp, author of Advent in Narnia and Senior Associate Rector of St. Chrysostom’s and former deacon at St. John’s, lead a conversation about the novel (which you do not have to have read to participate), faith and imagination, and a deeper keeping of Advent through the theological story of Narnia. Potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m., program begins at 7:00 p.m.
