Advent Quiet Day - Preparing the Heart in Advent

  • Cathedral of St. Philip 2744 Peachtree Road Northwest Atlanta, GA, 30305 United States (map)

Come spend time preparing your heart for the birth of Wisdom at an Advent Quiet Day, Saturday, December 9. The heart is a doorway that can be prepared to welcome the Christ, born in the poorest corner, in the most unlikely place. This day will include opportunities for wisdom practices that prepare and open the heart for transformation: chant, extended silence for individual reflection with readings, the labyrinth, creative expression, and body prayer.

The Quiet Day will be led by Lisa Persons, M.Div., who is a spiritual director and coordinator at Amerson House Spirituality Center behind St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. She studied intensively with the Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault for several years and has been an active associate of Green Bough House of Prayer since 1996. She has organized monthly Taizé prayers in the Atlanta area since 1992.

The Quiet Day will take place in the Lanier House on the Cathedral campus, 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, December 9. The cost is $20 and includes lunch.  Please register before December 4 online or by contacting Jeannie Mahood,jmahood@stphilipscathedral.org or 404-365-1031.
