September 8 @ 7:00 pm - October 6 @ 8:30 pm

The renowned theologian Karl Rahner said, “The Christian of the future will be a mystic or will not exist at all.” In other words, to remain vital for the future, Christianity must transform itself from a dogmatic religion to an embodied spirituality.

From the Desert Fathers to Julian of Norwich to Thomas Merton, Christian history is filled with stories of men and women who experienced a profound sense of God’s presence in their lives.

The mystics themselves would say, “Yes.” Furthermore, their message is not just for priests, monks or nuns, but is indeed meant for the entire people of God. With this in mind, during this weekend we will look… [Read more...]
