Pre-Advent Retreat – ‘From Wilderness to Wonder’

Date(s) - 20/11/2017 - 22/11/2017
4:00 pm

Four hundred years of silence from God between the Testaments, and then, after all the waiting, God breaks into lives again – not with the noise of a conquering army, but with the cry of a new born baby. The journey from Wilderness to Wonder is one we can see reflected in the lives of several biblical characters, with lessons for each of us as we await to celebrate the coming of the God-child.

Led by Duncan and Lesley MacLean, who live in North West Herefordshire where their home is a house of hospitality. Duncan is a Baptist Minister and Lesley’s background is in nursing and health visiting. They have a shared passion to encourage discipleship and transformation of the heart. In 2004 they left church ministry to set up House of Azar [meaning to help and to succour] from where they offer space, retreat, a listening ear and spiritual direction. As Companions of the Northumbria Community their home reflects the rule and rhythm of the Community. They also travel taking the ethos of Community into many different settings. They have two married daughters and four grandchildren.
