Event Details

The Universal Christ: another name for everything

A Conference Webcast March 29 & 30, 2019 at All Saints' Episcopal Church.

Christ is more than Jesus’ last name. Jesus is a person whose example we can follow. Christ is a cosmic life principle in which all beings participate. The incarnation is an ongoing revelation of Christ, uniting matter and spirit, operating as one and everywhere. Together—Jesus and Christ—show us “the way, the truth, and the life” of death and resurrection.

Explore the central themes in Father Richard Rohr’s new book (available March 2019) and discover the roots of the universal Christ in the rich history of the Christian tradition. Experience Easter in a new way as we consider larger, cosmic view of Christ, drawing upon theology, practices, conversation, and liturgy. How might this vision impact our own lives and communities?

Gather at All Saints’ on Friday, March 29 from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm and Saturday, March 30 from 8:00 am –5:30 pm—to be inspired, educated, and challenged both by an exciting group of speakers via remote webcast from the Center for Action and Contemplation, and discussion with fellow participants.

 Register at allsaints-cc.org by March 27.

 Full Conference registration includes all conference materials and meals.

 Full conference with a copy of Richard Rohr’s new book “Universal Christ” - $45.

Full conference without the book - $25.
