Contemplative Prayer: Teaching

Exploring other spiritual disciplines

The contemplative prayer teaching series continues in May as Fr. David and Fr. Rick lead us in an examination of Richard Rohr’s book, The Universal Christ.

 

In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name?

 

Too often our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center. —Richard Rohr

 

Each Tuesday from 7 – 8:15 PM in the Chapel, we learn other ways to enter into contemplative prayer. We believe that contemplative prayer is a gift or a grace from God and that there are many ways to enter into that gift. We focus not only on meditation but also on other contemplative spiritual practices, discussions and readings. Following this time of exploration, there is space and silence to process and share individual experiences.
