Advent Retreat 2017
Advent Retreat 2017 “A Life of Waiting”
with Rev. Nancy Cowtun
Monday, December 4th.
Doors open 6:30 pm.
FCJ Centre in Calgary
REGISTRATION is now open.
Nancy looks on Advent as a season of preparation. We look back on the manger and give thanks for the gift of the long awaited Saviour. We look forward to “the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.” (Mt 24:30b). In the meantime, we are to follow Christ willingly and obediently. How do you do that as an individual and as a member of the body of Christ? How did biblical personalities wait on the Deliverer? How did biblical Christ followers wait on His return as the King of kings and the Lord of lords? Come prepared to reflect on your life of waiting, both as a child of God and as part of the body of Christ.
