Universal Christ Group Study of Christian Contemplation with Rev. Daisy Kirkpatrick
September 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Every Monday at 1:00 p.m. the Universal Christ Group will host an in-depth read of a remarkable book that reveals the life and teachings of the great Christian mystics, Journey to the Heart: Christian Contemplation through the Centuries.
The contemplative tradition in Christianity traces its origins back to Mt. Carmel, the place of prophet Elijah’s mountain-top encounter with divine power. In the Gospels, we frequently read that Jesus withdrew to quiet places to pray. These biblical precedents have inspired a tradition of contemplation through the centuries.
There are 30 chapters in the book, written by a variety of well-known Christian writers. Since each chapter addresses a different mystic or mystical tradition, it will possible for people to come in and out of the group, if they cannot join for the whole series.
We invite anyone who is interested to join us!
