From the back cover....
Take time out with God.
This book gives an opportunity to discover some of the things that the approach to Christmas can teach us.
It includes excerpts from Henry Van Dyke’s short story ‘The Other Wise Man’, come and join him as he seeks the King!
The Advent Creative Retreat Activity Book offers a combination of meditations, prayers and activities. Some to challenge and some to help you relax and clear your mind and always to encourage you to hear the ‘still, small voice’.
Mark and Mary Fleeson have lived on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne since 1997, where they run the Lindisfarne Scriptorium and Mary regularly leads retreats and workshop days. Prior to that they led a Christian theatre group which worked around the UK and they regularly led day workshops combining Christian theatre with a deeper experience of meeting God.
From the introduction...
Welcome to this little book, it has been designed to be used throughout Advent to help you prepare for celebrating Christmas.
In a world where everyone is so busy we hope that the readings and activities within will help you find a quiet place where you can contemplate the festival of Christ's birth.
We recommend that you spread the sections over the course of Advent as they divide into five sections, four for the weeks of Advent and the last for Christmas itself.
With every blessing,
Mark and Mary Fleeson
