Ancient Christian Wisdom for Finding the Love of God in Our Hearts and in Our Lives
Saturday, March 23 — 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Ever since the disciples said to Jesus, “teach us to pray,” Christians have sought to deepen their faith through spiritual disciplines such as prayer, meditation, and contemplation. The Bible tells us to “be still and know God” — but for many of us, living busy and active lives, prayer often seems like something awkward or just plain unattainable. Or, we might remember to pray earnestly for our needs — but isn’t there more to Christian spirituality?
Answering the Call to Pray is a daylong workshop focusing on the most important of all quests — seeking the presence and love of God in our lives to equip us to live more faithfully and joyfully as Christians in today’s world.
Carl McColman is a Christian writer, speaker, and teacher. He is the author of books like Answering the Contemplative Call, An Invitation to Celtic Wisdom, and The Big Book of Christian Mysticism. He regularly teaches and leads retreats at churches, conference centers, monasteries, and seminaries.
This program is co-sponsored by the Cathedral Book Store, Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church, and the Cathedral of Christ the King.
