“TOWARD A NEW SPIRITUALITY FOR OUR TIME” FULL
July 17, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - July 24, 2017 @ 12:30 pm
Presented by Rev. Jim Nisbet, Diocese of Monterey
Two French mystics transformed my spiritual life- Jesuit, Teihard de Chardin and Benedictine, Charles de Foucauld!! In the mid-sixties, I studied them while living with a French community. Fr. Chardin’s writings prepared me to live a world-view as today 2017 where many view science as a god in comparison with Christian faith belief. Fr. Foucuald lived spirituality with a Taric tribe in Morocco with no support of Christian community. Come…pray, meet these two remarkable prophets who speak to our time and whose teachings are transforming our non-Christian environment and world.
