Advent Quiet Half-Day December 1

December 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Advent Quiet Half-Day, St. James’ Sanctuary
RSVP and request childcare by November 29

Come reclaim your peace as the Advent Season Begins. Step out of society’s bustle of the season and take time to prepare for the birth of the Christ Child.

Presbyterian Pastor Susan Wisseman will lead us through a series of meditations designed to help us reclaim our peace, reflecting on what Advent is really all about, and preparing us for Jesus’ birth. Our hope is that through this time of prayer and reflection we will each be able to create the Advent season we need – free from consumerism, filled with expectation and peace. Beverages and light snacks will be provided. All are welcome.

Susan most recently comes to us from Grace Presbyterian Church in Springfield, Virginia where she’s served as Associate Pastor. Prior to joining Grace, she was the Director or Christian Education at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Centreville. A native Californian, Susan holds a BA in English Literature from U.C. Santa Barbara, and a M.Div. from Wesley Theological Seminary.

Will you come, and will you need childcare? Please RSVP and request childcare by November 29 by contacting the parish office at office@stjamespotomac.org.
