Building on the goal of The School for Christian Practice to delve more deeply into our four key focus areas, join us for online discussion group facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Stuart Higginbotham on September 12, October 10, November 14, and December 12 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM on Zoom. There is no need to sign up, just click the Zoom link to join the discussion.
Our shared experience in these days calls us to a deeper reflection as we think theologically and pray more intently. How do we make meaning of our situation? To help us focus our conversations a bit more, our scheduled fall Sunday sessions will begin by using Matthew Fox’s new book Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in a Time of Pandemic–And Beyond.
The book is powerful, and it reminds us that Julian lived–and prayed and wrote–during the terrible plagues that swept through Europe. Her spiritual awareness was grounded in the reality of everyday life–and the suffering that spread through society. The insights that Fox gathers from Julian’s writings encourage us even as they ground us in a deeper awareness of both how God is present and how we are called to be present to one another and all creation.
I invite you to come share in these conversations not only by reading the book but also by bringing yourself into the conversations that we will share. We will gather on Zoom on the second Sunday of the month: September 12, October 10, November 14, and December 12.
