Join us as we read and faith share Living Peace: A Spirituality of Contemplation and Action by John Dear.
A spiritual handbook for readers who seek to make peace in their lives and in the world. The journey to peace, as Dear describes it, is composed of an Inner Journey (involving solitude, silence, prayer, and mindfulness), and a Public Journey (involving direct political action), which, undertaken together, make possible reconciliation and transformation on a global level. “If we try, and keep trying, and stay faithful to the journey unto our last breath, we will find great joy and a peace not of this world, knowing that we serve not only the human family but the God of peace.”
Our evenings will include chapter review, faith sharing on reflection questions, as well as time for private prayer. Please purchase the book on your own prior to the first evening. We recommend purchasing the book through Amazon Smile which donates a portion of the purchase price back to Loyola.
