This preparation for the celebration of Christmas – where God becomes human and humanity recognises its divinity – will follow the rhythm of the Bonnevaux community, time for silence and sharing, for work and rest, solitude and community, through reflection on the great scriptural and physical symbols of incarnation, working on the land (for those who wish), and guided reading.
