Diocesan Overnight Advent Retreat at Honey Creek | December 8 - 9
This prayer retreat will allow participants to quiet down through the practices of silent centering prayer, chanting and singing, praying with icons, Anglican prayer beads, Lectio Divina and the Daily Office. Attendees will practice each of those spiritual disciplines as a group, discuss our experience, and encourage each other in our spiritual journey. Each discipline will be book-ended by the ancient liturgies of our tradition. Participants will discover practices that will enrich their life with God in the season of Advent and beyond.
Facilitated by Lynne Kemp and three Savannah priests: Kelly Steele, Guillermo Arboleda and Hunt Priest. Register through Honey Creek's website, here. (Registration fees on the site include room and board.)

Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church presents:
An Exhibit of Sculpture & Assemblage
by Jerome Meadows | October 26 - December 3, to initiate Living Waters, a community project.
The art installation of Jerome Meadows' assemblages at St. Peter's presents a variety of intriguing compositions. When one understands Meadows' works are conversations about the ways of the world around us, we begin to see them as a pointed response to society. We invite you to join us for wine and cheese on Thursday, November 30 at 5 pm with artist Jerome Meadows and curator Tania Sammons as they guide a dialogue about Jerome's work in both art historical and every day contexts. Please call the office at 912.589.7242 to let us know you're coming to join in the "unveiling" of his truths!
Living Waters, an emerging project of St. Peters Episcopal Church, intends to deepen the connections between schools, social service agencies, and faith communities, from Skidaway Island on the south end to the north end of Waters in effort to co-create beneficial possibilities for all the people along Waters Avenue. Ten percent of all the sales from Jerome’s exhibit will support the efforts of the Living Waters project.
