The Universal Christ:
How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything
We See, Hope For, and Believe

by Richard Rohr

This summer we hope to read together each week and rediscover Jesus and learn to experience Christ in every thing.  Many of us feel disconnected by difficult times, longing for ways to awaken God’s love in ourselves and the world. The reality we face is simple yet difficult—the healing of the world hinges upon honoring the inherent sacredness of the world and every one in it.  For the next nine weeks we will share resources around Richard Rohr's book The Universal Christ.  Purchase the format of the book you prefer using this link

 We will gather in September to share time together to discuss how we have grown. 

The Summer Cathedral Read is being sponsored by the Baptized for Life Team.
