Advent Observations

Each year we have gathered on Wednesday nights to say Compline together, and thus sink into the quiet that communal prayer offers. Slowing down during this rich season is often a challenge, as the world around us immerses itself in the frenetically secular interpretation of Christmas. Some years we have said Compline and then shared a meal. Whatever the form, we relish the chance to come together in quietness and prayer, as we seek to honor the themes of waiting and watching that are so essential to the Advent Season.
