In the We Come Forth from Love Retreat, we invite you to listen to the wisdom of Rohr and Lewis awakening us to God’s love and to the original goodness within each of us. Their wisdom, in these webinars, encourages us to be present to transitional spaces in our lives and to know with confidence that God is present in all things. The retreat will include time for contemplation and shared dialog in community.

These original webinars were produced at The Universal Christ Conference in March 2019 and were made available to Dominican Center at Marywood as a result of a new collaboration with the Center for Action and Contemplation.

 

... And everything in between is a school for love. - Father Richard Rohr, OFM

Presenter | Jacqueline Lewis PhD | Dominican Center at Marywood, Grand Rapids, MILiminal spaces are those spaces between the now and the not yet, between what we know and what we don't know, between how we've always believed and the things that might be emerging in us. I want to invite people into Liminal Spaces, not as sites of terror, but as spaces to be approached with holy curiosity, and faith that God is there. - Rev. Jacqueline J. Lewis, Ph.D.
