8419 Bailey Road
An Advent Walk with John the Baptist: Wildman, Prophet and Warrior
Saturday, December 2, 8:30 AM – Noon
Carmelite Spiritual Center, Darien, IL
Morning reflection, rituals, and sharing
John the Baptist is a man like us whom God called to prepare and help create His reign. From the womb he was aware of something happening -a “presence” that ignited the divine spark within him. He became the male mentor of Jesus, helping him understand his role as “anointed of God” –the Messiah – and immersed Jesus in the River Jordan to accept who he was and his purpose on earth. He even challenged Jesus when he was not doing what John expected him to do. He lost his head for speaking uncomfortable truths.
As we approach Advent and celebrations of presence, Bob Colaresi and Jack Moller will lead us in a reflection, sharing and ritual as we accept and actualize our call to be wildmen, prophets and warriors, as John modeled for us. Come join your brothers on this Journey of Illumanation.
Open to all men. Free will offering. Pre-registration strongly requested by Nov. 29th
