About the Event

(Hybrid course - offered on Zoom & in person; taught by Matthew Lawrence) Richard Rohr is perhaps the most well-read and influential contemplative in the world today.  A Franciscan monk and priest, he is the founding director and academic dean of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We will read and discuss Rohr's recent book The Universal Christ, which has been embraced by many and condemned by others as “syncretistic pseudo-scientific neo-paganism… dressed up in Christian language.” Rohr’s approach does challenge some fundamental tenets of orthodoxy - so who’s right? You decide!  Please obtain your own copy of the book - on sale online or in person at your local bookstore, and also available at many public libraries.
