A Day of Reflection for Men & Women
The Lukan infancy narratives are rich in their revelation of God's outpouring of the Holy Spirit in prophecy, in people, in the weary world suddenly lit up by the joyful arrival of Jesus, Son of God and Savior, the Man of the Holy Spirit! Each of the narratives opens up a revelation of the person of Jesus, and the way in which the Holy Spirit will flood the scenes wherever He walks, inspiring hope, joy and conversion of heart. Please join us as we allow the infancy narratives of Luke to reveal to us, once more, the Jesus who is calling to us right now, to allow that Holy Spirit to fill our hearts, and in our own conversion, bring that Holy Spirit to our lives and our world.
Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
