Richard Rohr Discussion
Once a month, some Friends linger for an hour after worship for the Richard Rohr discussion group.
We begin by reading a page or two from the writings of Father Richard Rohr, a Franciscan friar and well-known writer whose work focuses mostly on contemplation and the union of God with all things. After reading aloud, we settle into silence and worship sharing.
Rohr’s writings invite us to consider together the practices and understandings that can support our own contemplative lives, in Meeting for Worship and beyond.
"The Richard Rohr discussion group offers us each a chance to reflect deeply in community about the contemplative life. We read short excerpts from the writings of the Franciscan friar, Richard Rohr, and then share out of silence about how the reading connects with our own experiences of contemplation and the divine."
