    12-Step Introductory Workshop To Centering Prayer

    Join us on Saturday, January 20 to learn about Centering Prayer. In our recovery, those of us who practice the 12 Steps found in AA, Al-Anon, and other 12-Step programs, sometimes find ourselves searching for the experience of emotional sobriety and deeper relationship with our Higher Power that is suggested in the 11th Step. Centering Prayer opens us to the contemplative dimension of spirituality. Read More

"Another Name For Everything: The Universal Christ"


Most Christians think that Christ is Jesus’ last name.  We extracted Christ from the Trinity and tried to make Jesus stand alone and apart as God.  This made us into a competitive religion instead of a universal religion.  If we do not rebuild Christianity on a Trinitarian foundation, we will continue to lose much of the dynamism, universal meaning, and creation based character of the Christian revelation.


Come hear the Scriptural, Patristic, and very traditional basis for our orthodox belief in a Cosmic notion of Christ, as Fr. Richard Rohr gives us a summary of his upcoming book on this lost but central doctrine.  You will be proud and happy to be a Christian!


Richard Rohr, O.F.M. is a Franciscan friar ordained to the priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church in 1970. He is a globally recognized Catholic and ecumenical Christian teacher focusing on mystical and transformational traditions and is the founder and director of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is also the author of more than twenty books.
