My Community is My Monastery
May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
What is the future of the church? How can we create a sustainable future? How might a contemplative life support the future of the church? Where do we begin such work? These are all questions that face the 21st-century Christian.
The contemplative life is open to all, lay and ordained, can be followed anywhere and everywhere, and will play a vital role in the sustainability of the church’s future. Join Bishop Brian Cole on an eight-week journey during the Easter season as we read The City is My Monastery by Richard Carter. We will reflect and explore how to live out the contemplative life within our East Tennessee communities, hoping to nurture new and renew current contemplative groups in parishes and beyond. The book is available at Union Ave. Books or from your preferred book and e-book retailers.
