We are so excited about our next book!  We are going to read, Everything Belongs: The Gift of Contemplative Prayer by Richard Rohr.  We will meet weekly for six consecutive weeks beginning on Monday, October 24, 2022, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. You can join us in person or on Zoom.

There is no registration fee, but you are responsible for buying the book. You can purchase the book at your favorite book store. Please register your attendance to receive your Zoom link and additional instructions about the book club.

About the book:

In Everything Belongs, Richard Rohr offers a personal retreat for those who hunger for a deeper spiritual life but don’t know what contemplation is.

Fr. Rohr helps us understand that intimacy with God cannot be achieved in the rational mind. By practicing contemplation, we learn not to reason better but to see everything–including ourselves and other people–differently. As our perspective becomes wider, we discover that everything belongs. This edition include a reading guide for individual and group reflection.
