Advent Quiet Day 2022



“As Kingfishers Catch Fire”-

An Exploration of the Incarnation With Gerard Manley Hopkins

Date: December 3, 2022
Time: 9 am – 3 pm
Place: The Hermitage Community, Three Rivers, MI
Presenter: Naomi Wenger
Suggested Donation: $75 (lunch included)

“…Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men’s faces.”

These words from the closing of Gerard Manley Hopkin’s untitled sonnet, form a framework for an Advent Quiet Day reflection on Being, Doing, Incarnation and Divinization. Join with Naomi in a day-long meditation on one of Hopkin’s most beloved poems. As we prepare for the darkening days of Advent and the remembrance of the incarnate birth of the son of God, we take a few hours to remember that we participate in this great movement of God earthward by approaching the fullness of “our life … hidden in Christ with God” (Colossians 3:3).

To register, email contact@hermitagecommunity.org or call 269-244-8696 before November 26.
