Event:ENTERING THE HEART OF CHRIST: CHRISTIANITY AS PARTICIPATORY MYSTERY
Date:August 15th, 2020.

Saturday

This day of contemplative retreat, prayer, and teaching is an opportunity to journey more deeply together into our union with God and one another.  We'll explore ways of moving beyond Christianity understood primarily as a "belief system," and instead engage our core doctrines of Trinity and Incarnation as participatory mysteries that Christ calls us to enter into and experience for ourselves.  We'll give particular attention to the "unitive" or "nondual" dimension of Christian faith, the recovery of heart-centered Christian contemplative practice, and pioneering Christian voices such as Teilhard de Chardin and Raimon Panikkar.

Rev. Matthew Wright will lead this day of retreat streaming live via Zoom.  Participants have the opportunity to attend in community at Genesis or participate from home via Zoom.

Faith makes all things possible, and love makes them easy. Faith in God is never out of season. Faith justifies the believer, but love justifies his faith by the works which it produces. Faith believes God to be true; love proves faith to be true.
- Charles H. Spurgeon
