Led by The Rev. Hillary Raining, D.Min.

Dr. Hillary Raining is Director of the Center for Christian Spirituality and Affiliated Professor of Ascetic and Liturgical Theology at General Theological Seminary in New York City.

An Opportunity for Restoration in Body and Spirit

In this workshop, Dr. Raining guides you through a meditation with prayer, scripture, and reflection.

The meditation draws upon "An Order for Worship in the Evening" in The Book of Common Prayer and features the practice of visio Divina, or "divine seeing," with candlelight.

The workshop includes a 15-minute video meditation guide and a printable worksheet for reflection and journaling.

It is designed to be a devotional resource that you can use for personal or group meditation again and again throughout the Advent season.

This devotional opportunity is a collaborative creation of The Center for Christian Spirituality at General Theological Seminary and Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary.
