I invite you to join an Advent Retreat on December 3, 2022 based on the book, Mother of God: Similar to Fire. This is offered by the Pacific Center for Spiritual Formation and you can register on this page. Donations are optional. The retreat will incorporate contemplative practices, including icons, lectio divina, walking meditations, and many opportunities for silence and opening to Presence.
William Hart McNichols and Mirabai Starr write: “During these times of mingled hope and despair, we urgently need Mary’s radical message: you are unconditionally loved…The love that Mary offers neutralizes politics and transcends dogma. It does not matter what faith, if any, you subscribe to. What matters is that you simply let yourself be loved."
