Contemplative Dialogue with Pastor Katie: “Adjusting Your Life’s Vision”

Categories: Events


September 30, October 7–28

Signup and attendance commitment required. This five-week series will teach “contemplative dialogue” as a small-group faith practice, using Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton. Participants will enter into periods of reflection, silence and sharing based on the principles of contemplative dialogue in weekly readings from scripture and Thomas Merton.  According to Bridges to Contemplative Living, “Merton knew that the only way to change the world is by changing individual people. Adjusting Your Life’s Vision helps participants adjust their visions of life to encompass constant compassion and self-giving love.” No preparation is required; however, a commitment of presence for at least four of the five scheduled classes is important for developing the group dynamic of contemplative dialogue sessions. This class is limited to twelve participants due to the nature of the contemplative dialogue. Click here to sign-up!
