Christmas Re-Visited: an Advent Quiet Day : 27 Nov, ONLINE

November 27, 2021 | 9:30 am 5:00 pm

An  online  day  retreat with Daniel Muñoz exploring  the  Christmas  story  through scripture, poetry, music and art. We will delve into the mystery of  the  Incarnation and  consider  Mary’s  response  to  the angel at  the  annunciation,  the  subversive  power  of  her  words  to Elizabeth  (the  Magnificat),  and  her experience  of  persecution and  exile  with  Joseph  and  Jesus.  We  will  reflect  on  some  of the marginal characters in the story: national political leaders, local shepherds, heavenly angels and foreign visitors. And we will ask the question: How can Emmanuel offer healing, hope and  light  to  our  world  today?  Inspired  by  Richard  Harries’ book,  A  Gallery of  Reflections:  The  Nativity of  Christ.
