Throughout the Season of Lent, Rev. Bob will offer a study on Saturday mornings from 10:30 to noon utilizing a book entitled, "The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind - a New Perspective on Christ and his Message" by Cynthia Bourgeault.
Cynthia is a modern day Christian mystic. She is also an Episcopal priest, writer, and internationally acclaimed retreat leader of contemplative spirituality. Her signature work is in the area of 'Centering Prayer'. She is founder of an international network of 'Wisdom Schools'.
If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus’ vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teachings for yourself. We will explore this remarkable book together and experience a few 'samples' of her recommended contemplative practices.
The study will happen during Lent commencing on Saturday, February 25 to April 1. Books will be available in advance. Let Minister Bob know if you are interested in taking part in the study or contact the Office.
