Finding Peace amid our differences
Wednesday, December 2, 2020 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM
How do we find common ground and peace amid differences?
During WWI, battling enemies ceased fire on Christmas and crossed trenches to come together in recognition of their common humanity. Fictionally portrayed in the movie, Joyeux Noël, the cease-fire along the Western Front around Christmas 1914 saw French, German, and Scottish soldiers ventured into "no man's land" on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to exchange seasonal greetings, mingle, and even play football!
As our nation faces deep divisions, what Christmas lessons can we learn for this historical event so to celebrate our own "Joyeux Noël"?
Join us for an inspiring Advent ONLINE day retreat as we remember how faith, hope, love, and peace can reign even amid deep hostilities. Allow this inspiring movie and historical event to encourage your heart this Christmas.
There is No Charge for this program, but a year-end donation to support Rolling Ridge would be a Christmas blessing as our 2020 finances have been hit hard because of the pandemic.
Schedule for Wednesday, December 2nd:
9:30 am ONLINE welcome & movie watch of Joyeux Noël
12:00 noon LUNCH break
1:00 pm ONLINE sharing and conversation
2:30 pm Closing
If you've already seen the movie, you are free to join us from 1-2:30 only for the conversation.
