Your Life as a Cup...

Are you empty?  Thirsty?  Cracked, chipped, or fragile?  Full and ready to be poured out?  Needing to be cleansed?

Following the glorious - yet- busy season of Advent, consider giving yourself (or another) the gift of rest and reflection. We will be guided throughout the weekend of silence by Reverend Patton, based upon Joyce Rupp’s book The Cup of Our Life. Winter months at Gray Center are especially conducive to contemplation!
