How Contemplation Can Heal a Violent World: Going Deeper – via Zoom
April 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
Our April Half-Day Retreat will feature three recorded excerpts from the Rt. Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton’s presentation on contemplation and nonviolence given during COMW’s 25th Anniversary Retreat in September 2022.
The excerpts will focus on the different faces of violence, the spirituality of nonviolence and nonviolence in action. Before each video, we will prepare ourselves to listen deeply by sitting together in Centering Prayer. We will listen to each video as though engaging in Lectio Divina, noting any word or phrase that especially resonates as God speaking to us personally. After each video, we will be invited to share the word or phrase that resonated with us as the Spirit’s call to non-violent action in our personal and communal lives. We will conclude our retreat with a final prayer and blessing.
