ADVENT LUNCHEON SERIES
"Ponder These Things:
Praying with Icons of the Virgin"
Every Thursday at 11:30 on Zoom
As we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ, join us for a weekly reflection to slow down and enter into a time of prayer and gratitude. Using three icons of the Virgin Mary and Jesus, we will allow the humble witness of Mary guide us to a deeper place of expectation and commitment.
To help get you started, learn more about icons here.
Week 1: The Hodegetria (The One Who Points the Way)
How do we let go of what was to accept what is?
Week 2: The Eleousa (The Virgin of Loving Kindness)
Where do we need to accept divine love into our lives?
Week 3: The Orans (The Virgin of the Sign)
How can we center our hearts in prayer and trust that God hears us?
We hope you will join us as we seek to draw closer to God through these sacred images, considering not only who God is for us but who we are for God.
For each Zoom gathering, please have a journal with you and light a candle in your home. Make this time a sacred moment with God and with one another.
