The core of The Gathering Place is centered in deepening the spiritual formation of its leaders in the Anabaptist tradition. To this ends, TGP wants to offer an Advent resource for its leaders to delve into as they prepare for the season. We are calling these, Advent Pauses.
Join TGP’s spiritual directors, Merv Stoltzfus and Marlene Frankenfield, as they lead us through these weekly Advent reflections. These brief 15- 20 minute pauses following themes from The Leader Magazine, will breathe space into your busy holiday season reminding and re-orienting you again and again to the reason for the season (and possibly giving you new insight for worship leading and/or preaching).
We will gather for four weeks at 2pm EST–and will focus on a different weekly theme, following Leader.
Week One: “God’s PEACE is at hand; Come walk in the way of God’s heart” Tuesday, 11/22, 2pm EST
In each Pause, we will follow the same flow:
Introduce Theme of Week
Read Scripture passage
Quiet Reflection Time
Question, “Where do you experience _________________?”
Question, “Where do you need _________________?
Opportunity for Personal Sharing
Question, “How would you wish your youth would understand this theme?”
Would you consider joining us this season?
