book study: Just This
Our weekly book study is beginning a new study starting Wednesday, November 15th @ 6:30P PST on the book, Just This by Richard Rohr
Our Book Study remains online via Zoom connection. Click here for links and more information.
Just This by Richard Rohr is a collection of meditations on the contemplative life and mindset and what it brings to our daily experience. A more recent book by Rohr, it captures his thoughts on contemplative practice as he winds up his career and moves into a less visible place in his ministry and work. Seems it will be a great follow on to Br. Lawrence and his practice of presence.
Book summary from Amazon:
Just This is a collection of brief and evocative meditations and practices that invite us to cultivate the gift of waking up to the beauty of reality in all its glorious ordinariness. With his signature blend of contemplation, theology, and pastoral sensitivity, Fr Richard Rohr creates a spaciousness for the soul to grow into a kind of seeing that goes far beyond merely looking to recognizing and thus appreciating. This is the heart of contemplation, the centerpiece of any inner dialogue that frees us from the traps of our perceptions and preoccupations. The contemplative mind does not tell us what to see; it teaches us how to see what we behold.
This book has a longer order time for some reason on Amazon, so please order as soon as possible. But if you don’t have the book by start date, join us anyway. We read through together so you can still follow till your book arrives. The Amazon link is here.
Come join us Wednesday nights at 6:30P PST to dive into a different world of experience and a different level of presence. Hope to see you on the little screen for this!
