Practical Mysticism: Teachings from Evelyn Underhill – via Zoom

June 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


A Half-Day Retreat led by the Rt. Rev. G. Porter Taylor

“God is the only reality, and we are only real in so far as we are in God’s order and God is in us … So those who wonder where they are to begin might begin here, by trying to give spiritual quality to every detail of their everyday lives.”

As followers of Jesus, how do we give spiritual quality to every detail of our everyday lives? In a time of conflict across the globe and COVID 19 and deep divisions in this country, how do we discover and maintain our connection to the only reality?

However, our calling is not merely to be connected to God. Underhill wrote, “We are transmitters as well as receivers.” She is calling for us to be “agents of the Creative Spirit in this world.” What does that look like in 2022 especially in the state of this country?

This event includes a time of Centering Prayer.
