2019 World Community for Christian Meditation


Can a church as we have come to imagine it really be contemplative? Laurence Freeman will share his vision of what the Spirit is already doing to reshape the church. He believes we have to look back to the origins and forwards into the unknown. We are not archivists, nor caretakers of a buildings, but followers of the Way.

The retreat will begin Friday evening, October 18, and end Sunday at Noon, October 20. There will be a National Conference for WCCM-USA the afternoon of October 20.
