About the Program

Enter more fully into the rich meanings of the Advent season by joining us for this year’s contemplative ecumenical Advent Evening of Prayer. Allow yourself to let go of some of the stress and “shoulds” of the holiday season; simply rest in prayer, word, art, music, imagination and silence.  Free parking in Seattle First Baptist parking lot ( first-come, first-served).
