Public Lecture on Zoom with Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Mon, 07/05/2021 - 19:00

Spirituality Today: What Does It Need To Address? – Public Lecture on Zoom with Fr. Ron Rolheiser OMI, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday, July 5: Spirituality is where theology incarnates itself into real life.

While theology deals with eternal truths, real life is constantly shifting, as are popular notions of God, faith, church, and discipleship. What needs to be the agenda for spirituality today, given the issues with which the churches and society are struggling? What needs to be addressed? From Thomas a Kempis, to Francis de Sales, to Jansenism, to Fulton Sheen, to Charismatic renewal, to Henri Nouwen, to the mega-churches, to Pope Francis, to the “Nones”- what are the salient issues?

Cost: $40.00 per screen (one or two participants). Register at https://qh.retreatportal.com/events/f?p=EVENTS:1  or (306) 242-1916.

“Wrestling with God: Resistance and Surrender Within Our Journey” – A retreat on Zoom with Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Monday July 5, 7:00 p.m. – Thursday July 8, 12:00 p.m.

$150 per screen (one or two participants).

Registration deadline: July 5, 12:00 p.m.

Register at the Queen’s House, Saskatoon website: https://qh.retreatportal.com/events/f?p=EVENTS:1  or leave a message at (306) 242-1916.

What do God and love ask of us? That can be answered in a single word, Surrender. But much inside of us resists, wanting its own way – so goes the journey. Jacob wrestled an entire night with God; the great prophets often said to God, ‘Thy will be changed;’ Jesus himself sweated blood in Gethsemane, asking God to change his will; and even in our most intimate relationships we still resist losing our independence. Our journey in faith and in love is a constant struggle between resistance and surrender. What drives this? What is healthy and what is not? This retreat will explore understanding God, understanding ourselves, understanding our struggle, and understanding love.

After 14 months of pandemic: “Who among us isn’t wearing thin? It is easy to feel a sense of stagnation, of emptiness.  The constant ups and down make us feel like we are climbing a never-ending ladder.”  Dr. Andrew Chang. The word people are using to describe this experience is languishing. Languishing is not depression.  It is to be or live in a state of decreased vitality. A sense of ‘blah’ about future plans. This workshop will be of interest to: People who are experiencing the end of a significant love relationship; going through a separation or divorce or who have experienced the end of a common law relationship. This evening will help you to name your experience of the pandemic in a context of hope; give you the opportunity to hear how others are making sense of their experience; and shine a light on take-able steps that can help us move forward with confidence.

Sponsored by Olive Branch Marriage and Family Ministry and Queen’s House Retreat & Renewal Centre. $35/event. A minimum of 8 participants are needed to offer each workshop. Registration deadline June 28.   Register at https://qh.retreatportal.com/events/f?p=EVENTS:1  or leave a message at (306) 242-1916.
