The Uncluttered Heart Online Retreat, Nov. 28, 2010 – Jan. 6, 2011
Cost: $40 – includes digital book, small group facilitation, online software
This online retreat is co-sponsored by The Upper Room and BeADisciple.com. A gracious group of volunteer facilitators join me in leading the retreat. These facilitators are church leaders from all over the country. Both clergy and lay, they bring their love of Advent and Christmas, as well as open, compassionate hearts. I’m looking forward to sharing the season with them and with all those who sign up for the retreat.
Here are our facilitators:
- Mark Babb — Jackson MI
- Ginger Bennett — Biloxi, MI
- Suzanne Elliott — Chambersburg, PA
- Scott Endress — Houston, TX
- Michael Henderson — Cayce, SC
- Carol Kleber — Wantagh, NY
- Lisa McGehee — Richmond, VA
- Marcia Middleton — Albany, NY
- Dawna Petersen — Bloomington, IN
- Ingrid Quigley — San Jose, CA
- Pam Wiggins — Porter, TX
- Lorenza Williams, Jr. — Philadelphia, PA
Participants will receive daily encouragement and receive support from others on the journey. The class begins on November 28, 2010, the first Sunday of Advent, and continues until Epiphany, January 6, 2011. Participants should plan to login daily at a time of day which is convenient to their own schedules. A missed day may be made up the next, but the discipline of daily study will be valuable to the journey through Advent.
Will I need a book for the retreat?
You won’t need a book — the book’s content is included in the retreat.
What if I did The Uncluttered Heart last year?
It’s up to you — the retreat may be just what you need for this year. The online retreat contains similar material you received last year, but by participating in the retreat, you’ll have the chance to be a part of a small group. If you long to be a part of a group and one is not available to you, then you may want to prayerfully consider joining the retreat.
What do I need in order to participate in the retreat?
A computer with an internet connection that you can access every day. (You’re not alone — technical assistance is available.)
What if the retreat is not for me?
No worries — the retreat may not be for everyone. I hope you will participate in The Uncluttered Heart by using the book and The Uncluttered Heart website. I’ll be posting daily content and sending text messages to remind you to connect with God throughout the days of Advent and Christmas.
Please let me know if you have other questions. I’m looking forward to spending Advent with you.
