July 2 @ 9:00 am – 9:45 am
Adult Formation will continue through the summer with the book, The Universal Christ
by Richard Rohr. The book can be purchased through The Center for Action and Contemplation at https://store.cac.org/collections/richard-rohr-essentials/products/universal-christ. It can also be purchased from Amazon in hardbound, paperback, or for Kindle, or the pdf version can be downloaded. Here is a brief description of what it’s about:
Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center.
Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. “God loves things by becoming them,” he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God—except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.
All are welcome to join us at 9:00am on Sunday mornings in Leach Hall.
