"Doing and Saying" and "Things at Their Depth" (Chapters 8 and 9) were covered in tonight's book study. The video, with Fr. Richard Rohr, Fr. Manning and N.T. Wright, entitled "The Future of Christianity" offered a look into the future and our evening concluded with a video presentation of images of the Resurrection as depicted over the centuries in Eastern and Western Christianity and offers its own take on the future of Christianity. Fr. Richard Rohr's interpretation of scripture is most illuminating. The attached file offers, as well, further resource items considering one of the themes of the book, namely East vs West.
October 5, 2020:
Love is the Meaning, A Sacred Wholeness and Going Somewhere Good were our chapters for tonight's session. We also had an opportunity to explore Richard Rohr's "Spiritual Transformation" Appendix II, and to hear him respond to questions at a men's conference. Again, open the attached file and you can follow our study.

We gathered, we shared and we viewed excerpts from Fr. Richard Rohr's online presence. In particular, we were introduced to his understanding of Four World Views. If you open the attached file, you can go to the video directly. His discussion in "Universal Christ" comes as Appendix One.
Tonight we welcomed some familiar faces along with old regulars and newcomers to our second session on zoom. Our videos in session 2 featured Fr. Richard Rohr, addressing Chapter One and leading us through the second in his series on Christology, along with a short animated talk on James Fowlers' Six Stages of Faith.

The opening session of Monday Night Book Study, one of the longest continuously run programs of St. David's, occurred on Monday Night. There were 37 of us focussing on Richard Rohr's most recent book, Universal Christ. Our group included many of our regulars along with folks from Comox, BC, Kamloops, BC and Toronto,ON. It was great to have Mike join with us on ZOOM. He has followed our classes for a number of years on keynote but this year, he joins us on the 'Gallery' screen. Welcome to all of you!
About Monday Night Book Study
Wayne, Joan and I are busy preparing for our study of Richard Rohr's book, "Universal Christ." (available on Amazon, Apple or Indigo) We will be ZOOMING through our 10 nights of Monday Night Book Study which will be a brand new experience for us. This is the 45th book that we have worked our way through during our fall and winter sessions. (Previous studies can be found online) Unfortunately, Marlene will not be supplying hospitality, we won't be re-arranging the T.M. room or pinning on our name tags. Instead, your name will appear on Gallery View, you can set out your own goodies and keep your book close at hand. Fun!! (You can purchase the book on tape, as well.)
If you wish to be part of our study, you should contact the office at 403 284 2276 and register thereby getting your name on the invitation list. See you on the 14th.
