In response to the growing interest in what ‘Contemplative’ means and to continue the awakening of new ideas on Christianity, we are inviting you to a new space and practice within St Luke’s: The Contemplative Forum. Through study and contemplative practice, we become ever more aware of God’s loving presence with and in all things and embrace a rich heritage of faith from Christian mystical traditions. This will be an ongoing space and time for exploring all concepts, theologies, persons, practices and questions about what it means to be a contemplative or to lead a contemplative life. Our gathering time will begin with an open discussion so that the Contemplative Forum will be a response to the questions and longings of the participants.
The Contemplative Forum will be lead by Martha Eskew and Minday Duryear, both recent graduates of the Living School, a part of the Center of Action and Contemplation founded and lead by Fr. Richard Rohr. Both are 'Disciples of the Big Picture’ and have been ’Sent into the University of the Great Unknowing’ to “draw out from your storehouse - things both old and new.”
Please join them and help begin a new chapter at St. Luke’s to explore the Wisdom of the Perennial Tradition and Contemplation. We will meet every Sunday from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
