Journey with us through the season of Advent as we become aware of God’s presence and the grace of waiting for that something on the horizon. In this Advent season, we open to the wonder of God’s desire to be with us.

This retreat will weave the four themes of Advent: Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace as we prepare our hearts and minds. The time offers opportunities for: rest, reflection, prayer, meditation, journaling, and mindfulness; weaving together meditative music, scripture, modern wisdom, reflective questions, and walks in nature.

The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before ...

What is possible is to not see it, to miss it, to turn just as it brushes past you. And you begin to grasp what it was you missed, like Moses in the cleft of the rock, watching God’s [back] fade in the distance.

Gift yourself time at Well of Mercy to be in nature and sacred space—to listen more deeply to the Spirit within and to prepare for that something on the horizon.

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

There will be time enough for running.

For rushing. For worrying. For pushing.

For now, stay. Wait.

Something is on the horizon.

-Jan Richardson
