Benefice Quiet Day on Tuesday 27th November 2018 at Buckfast Abbey, from 9.30 am to 5 pm
led by The Venerable John Reed
“Let me seek you in longing; long for you in seeking.
let me find you in love and love you in finding”
This day provides time and space away from your daily surroundings and preoccupations. It is a time for God and you. So, I will aim to keep verbiage to a minimum and let music and silence become the better vehicles for the refreshment of your soul. Advent has been described as ‘the time for adults to prepare to let in the child’. Advent recalls God’s ‘adventure’ – the time leading up to his coming to us in The Word made Flesh, the child of Bethlehem, Jesus. I encourage you to take this time away before the start of Advent and look forward to sharing it with you.
Please sign up at the back of church if you would like to attend the Quiet Day, or let the Parish Office know (01822 616673). The cost of the day per person is £15 to include refreshments, but not lunch. If you need help with transport, please let us know. We shall be based in the Dart View No. 1 meeting room in the Conference Centre at Buckfast Abbey.
