Pathways Rhythms

December 2020


The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon

the likes of which we have never seen before.

So stay. Sit. Linger. Tarry. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder.

There will be time enough for running. For rushing. For pushing.

For now, stay. Wait. Something is on the horizon.

- Jan Richardson

Advent Visio Divina

Wednesday, December 2, 9, 16, 8am


​Led by Sylvie Gudin, Visio Divina (divine seeing) combines the traditional process of Lectio Divina (divine reading) with the visual arts. Each Wednesday a different art piece will be the focus – with the invitation to see beyond first impressions.  The zoom link is here.
