She Said Yes: Making Room for the Birth of God

December 13, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


By considering the infancy narrative of Luke we will discover how this Christmas story actually summarizes and focuses the message of the Good News of the New Testament, and invites us to make this good news personal.  Then, in keeping with the gospel’s foundational message of the Word made flesh, or Incarnation, we will learn how our ordinary and seemingly secular preparations for Christmas may become vehicles for a contemplative practice which will prepare us spiritually for the birth of God, the mystery of the Incarnation.
