Facilitated by Mary Kay Whitacre, DMIN
Cost: $50

Christmas hymns originally were written to convey a very specific message, and as many of us know, they have the power to stir potent memories and emotions. The sounds of the season can inspire peace and love, as well as sadness or nostalgia, and even open old wounds. Together we will explore the potential messages they contain for us in today’s world.

Please register by November 19. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available, and if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts, to ensure the delivery of the source email containing the Zoom link and any additional materials or guidelines for the retreat, which will be emailed the day prior to the retreat. We look forward to seeing you online.
