Retreat: How Contemplation Can Heal a Violent World with Bishop Eugene Sutton

September 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

In recognition of its 25th Anniversary, on Saturday, Sept. 10, Contemplative Outreach of Maryland and Washington (COMW) invites everyone to participate in a full-day retreat led by COMW co-founder, the Right Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton, Bishop of Maryland. The retreat, which is entitled “How Contemplation Can Heal A Violent World,” will focus on how contemplation is as relevant as ever in today’s world of violence in all aspects of our lives, both domestically and globally. Indeed, Centering Prayer, as one form of contemplation, is a method for stilling our minds, and in silence opening our hearts to peace and understanding, thereby creating a foundation for a nonviolent response to any event that occurs in our lives.

The program agenda will include three conferences and two Centering Prayer sits plus one contemplative walk on the beautiful and historical grounds of Christ Episcopal Church.

The retreat payment for this program will be $45. Your retreat payment will include the full-day program of presentation and discussion, and buffet lunch. Parking is available onsite at the church. Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited.
