November 15, 2021, Adrian, Michigan – When most people think of the Incarnation, they think of God becoming human as Jesus Christ. But, like Jesus, we all come from the wholeness and holiness of God. What if we really believed and lived from this essential truth?

Sister Pat Kozak, CSJ, explores this theme in “Becoming Incarnation: An Advent Retreat,” scheduled from 7:00 p.m. EST Sunday, November 28, 2021, through 11:00 a.m. EST Thursday, December 2, 2021. The event is offered virtually, through Zoom. 

Sister Pat is a process facilitator and consultant for religious congregations in the United States and Canada. Her interests include learning ways of engaging in brave and safe conversations that can make a difference in the world.

The cost is $160. Registration is required and is available at www.webercenter.org; click on “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing webercenter@adriandominicans.org. Limited scholarships are available.

October 26, 2021, Detroit Waiting in Wondrous Expectation, the 2021 Advent booklet written by Adrian Dominican Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP, is available to be used as a prayerful Advent resource for individuals, families, or parish groups. Written as a companion to the Advent season, the booklet includes a list of the daily readings, a reflection, a daily practice, and a prayer for each day.

While many see the traditional Advent focus on waiting in reference to the centuries of waiting for the Messiah, Advent also encourages us to “wait in the everydayness of our lives,” Sister Janet writes in her introduction. 

A retreat leader and a consultant for catechists and adult faith formation leaders, Sister Janet also once ministered as Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Archdiocese of Detroit. She is a recipient of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) Distinguished Service Award.

Waiting in Wondrous Expectation is available through Twenty-Third Publications and the Weber Center Shop, webershop@adriandominicans.org or 517-266-4035.
