Do you sometimes find yourself wrestling with what it means to believe? With the role of religion in your life? If so, you are not alone. Many people are walking away from “organized religion” because it no longer resonates with their experience. Ironically—and at the same time—our longing for spiritual meaning is more urgent now than ever. How can we understand this “spiritual whiplash,” this time of radical upheaval? Religious scholar Thomas Berry tells us that we are “in between” stories. The traditional religious narrative no longer inspires us, but the new cosmic story is only beginning to emerge. This virtual retreat explores this search for a “cosmic spirituality” by returning to the heart of Christian life. Journey with us toward deep contemplation and creative action—the call to become mystics and prophets in the service of creation.
