He will challenge us to ask what Christianity’s blessing for the world could be if there were to be fresh birth from deep within. The ‘Rebirthing of God’ through presentation, meditation, conversation and sharing will explore the major features of this birthing, especially coming back into a relationship with the Earth as sacred, reverencing the Wisdom of other religious traditions and living the way of compassion.
Do we wish to be part of this new holy birth?
