Event description

Description

We welcome Dr. Frank Rogers, Jr. to San Diego for a day of stories, guided meditation, personal reflection and authentic sharing as we examine Jesus' invitation to cultivate compassion - not only for others, but for ourselves as well.

This retreat day will assist Christians who know Jesus' call to love one another as God first loved us, yet struggle to know how to embody authentic love when we are so often overwhelmed with confusion, fear, and distrust in this crazy, polarized world.

As we face the uncertainties in the world, let us remember the life and heart of the One who incarnated compassionate listening and loving action. Come for a day of nourishment for our souls and bodies!

Participants will be invited to

  • experience grounding in Sacred Source of Compassion
  • explore ways of offering self-compassion when personally triggered
  • deepen understanding of Jesus' invitation to love our enemies
  • discern compassionate action that is right for you


Dr. Rogers is the Muriel Bernice Roberts Professor of Spiritual Formation and Narrative Pedagogy at Claremont School of Theology and Co-Director of the Center for Engaged Compassion. He is the author of: “Practicing Compassion and Compassion in Practice — The Way of Jesus.”

Beloved San Diego and Hope United Methodist Church are partnering to bring this full-day contemplative Christian retreat to the San Diego area. All who are interested in exploring how to practice compassion the way Jesus embodied and taught are welcome regardless of faith affiliation or tradition.
