The Shape of Christian Virtue
An Online Retreat
With Sarah Bachelard and Laurence Freeman OSB
Given that most of our communication and exploration is - for the moment – online,
what better time to take part in an online retreat?
The world’s current crisis is not only about health. It is a crisis that confronts us with many truths too long suppressed or ignored: the fragility and structural injustices of our economic system; the interconnectedness of the human family, and of the human and natural worlds. It helps us see that things really could be otherwise and that we could choose a more abundant and shared flourishing. We are in a liminal space. It will matter how many of us can see, choose and commit to the real.
In the wake of the crisis of Easter, too, the early Christians understood that something new had become possible and was being asked of them. They glimpsed a new vision for humanity, and were empowered by a different quality of hope, courage and freedom. Gradually, they transformed their society.
In this series of reflections, Sarah Bachelard explores the distinctive shape of Christian virtue, how it matters, and how a contemplative practice can enable us to grow in grace and power.
