Advent Reflection – Online

Again this year, Jan Richardson is leading an online Advent retreat to provide space for reflection in the weeks prior to Christmas. Jan is an artist, writer and ordained minister in the United Methodist Church who travels widely as a retreat leader and conference speaker. .

Illuminated 2018: An online journey into the heart of Christmas will take place from December 1-28. It includes three emails a week featuring written reflections, questions and blessings by Jan, along with her artwork and the music of Garrison Doles. An online forum provides space where you can offer responses and engage with Jan and others during the retreat.

The individual cost for the retreat is $90 US, but a group rate of $60 US is available for groups of 8 or more registering together. If you are interested in participating or have questions, please contact karen.watson@kmwatson.com before November 28.
