This fall will focus on Richard Rohr’s 2019 book The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe.

Jesus is God individual and personal; Christ is God everywhere and universal.” Join us for this important and illuminating series. Books are available in the office for $20, or pay what you can. Childcare provided. This week: Chapter 16 - Afterword
