A Season of Listening: God’s Voice in Christmas (online)

December 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

While secular Christmas ends on December 25, that is just the beginning of a beautiful season that moves into the new calendar year, celebrating Mary the Mother of God, Epiphany and concluding with the Baptism of Jesus. For many, it is a season of reviewing the old year and preparing for the new.

This two-session retreat invites you to listen for God’s voice in a sustained way through this season. The first 90-minute session presents three prayer practices for listening to God’s voice and several methods for capturing and pondering God’s guidance. The second session reviews the prayer practices, offers a chance to share your experience of sustained prayer, and offers ways to close this season of prayer.

Presenter: Sister Edith Bogue, OSB, is a Benedictine sister recently transplanted to Sacred Heart Monastery in Cullman from a monastic community in the midwest. A sociologist and social worker by training, she has also served as oblate and vocation director. A retreat leader and spiritual director, she joined the staff of the Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center in July 2021.  

Cost: $25 (covers both sessions)
