Universal Christ


Once we know that the entire physical world around us, all of creation, is both the hiding place and the revelation place for God, this world becomes home, enchanted, offering grace to any who look deeply. I call that kind of deep and calm seeing ‘contemplation’.

This reflective study series meets over nine sessions through the year to read and reflect on Richard Rohr’s book: The Universal Christ – How a forgotten reality can change everything we see, hope and believe.

Each session offers a guided structure for individual reflection and group sharing to help expand, deepen and embed the core content of the text.

You will need to purchase your own copy of the book for the programme. There are a couple of copies available in our lending library.

Siobhan Burke is a Spirituality Team Member at St Bede’s working in spiritual formation.
