FINDING HOPE IN DARK TIMES

November 4, Saturday                              

How do we find HOPE, when fear, hopelessness and destructive forces clash all around us?   How can we break through when life seems to be breaking down?

Nothing is permanent! Institutions, traditions, social, political, religious and cultural structures are experiencing a paradigm shift. On a personal level, chaos breaks in at the most unexpected moment, bringing with it loss, uncertainty, pain and suffering.  We seem to feel in our very being the ‘groaning of the entire creation’ and we are ‘enveloped in darkness more charged with menace than promise’.

Yet, for Christians the darkness is ‘lit up and is animated by the Divine Presence’.  So, how do we find this Light in the darkness?  How can we navigate the shift and live in joyful hope? 

9:30am 3:30pm Fee: $75 with lunch, $65 without. Pre-registration is required.

We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
