Advent Day of Prayer: Jesus and the Universal Christ

$40.00

Richard Rohr has written a book entitled The Universal Christ:  How A Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe.  It presents a challenge to see what is sacred in everyone and everything.  In his book he says “God loves things by becoming them.”  This advent, as we reflect on the reality that God through Jesus has become one of us let us allow Richard’s writings stretch us to see that “the Christ”, the Universal Christ, our Savior, is drawing us into the future through the energy of love.  St. Paul in Colossians tells us:  “There is only Christ. He is everything and he is in everything through him all things are reconciled, everything in heaven and everything on earth”.    This cosmic Christ of St. Paul draws us closer and closer.  Rohr tells us “When I know that the world around me is both the hiding place and the revelation of God, I can no longer make a significant distinction between the natural and the supernatural, between the holy and the profane.”  PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER UNTIL JULY 1 2020

December 16, 2020  Starts at 10 AM and ends at 3 PM (Lunch is included.)
