Brian McLaren: Faith, Doubt and Contemplation: Being Contemplatives in a Dangerous Time – via Zoom

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


This is a hybrid presentation being conducted both in person at The Center for Contemplative Living in Denver, CO and online via Zoom videoconference.

Description of Talk: Institutional religion, much like many of our other institutions, is under stress, and that will seem like an understatement to many. Contemplative spirituality has provided a way for many of us to continue in faith even though our relationship to organized religion is troubled. How can those of us rooted in the contemplative tradition contribute constructively in this tense moment? How can we, from a position of personal centeredness, be salt and light in these times? How can we draw deep roots from our own Christian tradition while welcoming insights and seeking collaboration among traditions?

This conference presentation will include at least one 20-minutes Centering Prayer session.
