Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest and one of the world’s leading teachers on the Christian contemplative tradition. In this book he invites us to re-imagine our understanding of the historic figure of Jesus born 2000 years ago and what he names the Universal Christ, the source of the Big Bang and the principle of divine love written into this evolving universe 13.8 billion years ago.

Join a small group (maximum ten people) and journey together over six sessions as we reflect on the themes and questions in the book through reading, meditation and contemplative practice and participation in a community of fellow inquirers as we discover “a forgotten reality that can change everything we see, hope for and believe”.

We ask that before signing up you check that you are available for all six sessions. We recognise life is unpredictable and we want everyone who participates to have the intention to be at all the sessions and to commit to read sections of the book ahead of each meeting. There is a choice of two groups: one during the day on Saturdays and the other on Monday evenings.

This group hosted by John Watters and Revd Jane Bartlett in Shoreham-by-Sea meets between 7pm-9.30pm on Mondays 3 & 17 February, 2, 16, 30 March & 20 April. The group begins with a shared vegetarian meal.

Register here on Meet-Up or by emailing [masked]

(If the above time is inconvenient another group hosted by Rita Garner and Avril Loveless meets in Hove between 10.30am-1.30pm on Saturday 8, 22 Feb, 7, 28 March, 18 & 25 April.)
