Retreat

SECTION 8–THE UNIVERSAL CHRIST                                                         

 

“Baptism immerses us in cosmic evolution in such a way that we have a responsibility to evolve and participate in the birth of Christ within:  All of you who are baptized into Christ have clothed yourselve with Christ.  Those who follow Jesus are healthy wholemakers and to help make creation healthy.  A healthy life for a healthy cosmos requires receptivity, openness, and compassionate love that reaches across the lines of difference and accepts the other as a part of oneself because together we are one in the cosmic body of Christ.” Ilia Delio, The Emmergent Christ.

As we come to the end of our Advent Retreat I would like for you to reflect on this material has assisted you in a different and hopefully deeper understanding of Christ. For me it has helped me to translate Biblical materials in light of our evolutionary and scientific materials, and given me a broader understanding of Jesus and the world at large.
