Mulbarton mum offers guided approach to Advent
Sarah Miller, a vicar’s wife from Mulbarton in south Norfolk, will be hosting a gentle evening to help you settle into Advent. Here she shares an invitation.
Advent is always the church season that most catches me out. I've just gotten into my stride adjusting to the Autumn clock change and have likely been preoccupied with ways I can get ahead for Christmas. Then all of a sudden, it's the end of November and Advent is upon me. And I haven't given much thought to tending my soul through this special month ahead.
Does that sound familiar? Maybe in these uncertain times we are still living in you would like to attend an Advent something but don't feel able to venture into a church. You would like to give yourself some time to mark this season but don't quite know how.
Or perhaps you are looking for something a little different, something to help you pause, consider, reflect - that will help you mark the beginning of this Advent in a unique way.
Why not join me for Approaching Advent, a gentle, spacious, guided evening to help you settle yourself into Advent? It will be a time to gather ourselves and consider how we are doing at the start of this particular Advent, what our hopes are for this month ahead, and sit awhile in His presence to hear His heart for us as we step into this season.
The Secret Garden and Zechariah's meeting with Gabriel will help us along our way, as well as the Gift Pack with some lovely things to enjoy during the evening. It would simply be a joy to have you along.
My love of both words from all sorts of places and contemplative silence, and my heart to share the journey with fellow travellers has seen the birth of Faith in the Unfolding - a reflective, online space creating meaningful events and retreats to meet with God along life's way.
Do head to faithintheunfolding for further details and to book your place. Zoom details will be emailed ahead of the event. As always you can join live on the night, or at anytime that works better for you.
Approaching Advent streams from 7.30pm – 9pm on Sunday November 28. The cost of the evening is £10, including the accompanying journal and gift pack.
Editor’s note: Sarah is serving alongside her husband in parish ministry in the Mulbarton Group of Churches. As well as being a vicar's wife, she is also a home-schooling mum of their two children.
