Building a Radically Different Future – From the Inside
The apostles did not transform their world and its cultural systems by means of clever marketing, strap-lines or strategic plans. They transformed the world because they were transformed in Christ. They offered a new way of life, a new way of seeing and being.
As a direct, practical response to the circumstances in our communities that call for peace and reconciliation, each of us can commit to the quiet, steady work of establishing peace in ourselves. This is perhaps the most important thing we can do. Everyone around us, our families, the communities we live and work in, our entire society, will benefit.
In this practical session, Chris will speak into the extraordinary opportunity opened by the Coronavirus crisis for each of us to participate in the creation of a radically different future – through aligning our lives to the depthless-depths of peace and communion within us.
“Being peace, being places of reconciliation: this is the fruit of contemplative practice. Words are optional.”
This event will be accessible to Christians of all denominations and to people of all faiths and none.
There will be no charge for the event. However, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who chose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a donation, when booking a place for this event, to enable our work to remain open to all.
