Christ in the Rainbow - An Advent retreat for LGBT people
When: Friday, 15 Dec 2017 12:00PM | Where: Holland House
15th to 17th December 2017
In this weekend we can discover what the message of Advent and Christmas can mean in the context of our lives as gay, lesbian, bisexual men & women or transgendered people. Our colours of the Rainbow may lead us to this Christ event.
We remember that Christ was born in the midst of outcasts of his time. As queer men and women of faith we also experience that the religions of our time do not necessarily want us in their midst, yet we find our place, trust our journey and are blessed. Like the Magi in the nativity story we have gifts to bring, we are invited what these gifts mean as LGBT people for us and the world.
Our time together will consist of talks and discussions, liturgy and meditation, prayer and visualisation with time for quiet reflection and rest. Wherever you are on your faith journey or whatever spiritual background you are from, you are welcome to participate.
Cost £180 includes all meals and accomodation. Friday at 12 noon to Sunday at 2pm.
It is possible to request to arrive a day earlier or stay a day longer.
