The Rev. Barbara Crafton to lead Advent sessions

Author and Episcopal priest the Rev. Barbara Crafton will speak at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 16, and lead a Quiet Day from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 17, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1130 First Ave.

Her theme is "Letting the Christmas Story Tell Itself."

For the Wednesday evening program, she will read from her book "Mary and Her Miracle: The Christmas Story Retold" and lead a discussion on different ways of using scripture. The Quiet Day will involve imagining members of the holy family in ways that bring them alive.

There is no charge for either program; donations are welcome for lunch. For information, e-mail the Rev. Donna Gafford: agafford2@bellsouth.net
