Voices of Advent
Featuring Katerina Katsarka Whitely
We are very happy to announce that Katerina Katsarka Whitely will lead the retreat on the weekend of Advent I. A native of Thessaloniki, Greece, Katerina is a much sought-after retreat leader and the author of numerous books about Women, the Bible, and Advent, including: “Speaking for Ourselves: Voices of Biblical Women,” “Light to the Darkness: Lessons and Carols, Public and Private,” and “Waiting for the Wonder: Voices of Advent.” Her most recent book is titled “Around a Greek Table.” A beautiful and colorful cookbook, it follows the seasons of the church year as observed in Greece including recipes and stories about Greek family and culture. This will be a profoundly rewarding and centering experience of the season of Advent.
