Advent: A Holy Waiting is designed as an e-retreat experience.  Participants will find enrichment for the season through scripture, spiritual reading and listening, group discussion, prayer, and sacred music.


This e-retreat is intended to provide an oasis of peace and quiet reflection as we wait for the coming of the Light in an over-busy world.

Advent: A Holy Waiting
Course Level – Basic


Let This Be the Time:
Spiritual Essentials for Life’s Second Act

Course Level – Basic

If we don’t listen to the world’s stereotypes, myths and jokes about getting older, our lives are filled with possibilities, growth, depth and joy, particularly in the things that matter. The spirituality of our maturing years enables us to be maturing persons of integrity, touching the world with gifts that are so needed.


This seminar explores the needs of people in their later lives: what is happening and how to maximize these times for the deepening of our spirituality.
