Advent Series: The Universal Christ
Wednesdays: 11/20, 12/4, 12/11, 12/18 at 8 pm
Bleecker Hall, St. John's Episcopal Church
Join us on Wednesday evenings in Advent for a discussion on Richard Rohr’s latest New York Times bestseller, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe. 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.
Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher whose work is grounded in Christian mysticism, practices of contemplation, and compassion for the marginalized. He is a Franciscan priest and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation.
The Universal Christ is widely available from booksellers in many formats, including audio. Participants should read chapters 1-4 before the opening session on November 20.
