"Advent: Less Hectic, More Holy" Continues On Sunday At Christ Episcopal

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

This Advent at Christ Episcopal Church, Douglas at McCallie, the Adult Forum will be discussing what Advent means to each of us. As life seems to get busier, louder and more insistent, it becomes increasingly important that we find ways to stop and breathe deeply. During Advent, we are going to use our time to talk about how we can simplify our holidays and focus on what the season is truly about. Come share your joys and frustrations about this special season and let's share ideas together for creating an Advent that is perhaps slightly less hectic and hopefully more holy.

 "Advent: Less Hectic, More Holy" will meet Sundays, Dec. 15 and 22, from 9:15 a.m. to 10ish in Fox Hall.
