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 class will begin with a shared, light meal in the Mercer refectory followed by conversation in the Mercer library. Registration is free, but required. If you are able to bring something to share at dinner, please select the date and item you intend to bring.
