The Grail in Brisbane Explores Spirituality for a New Era

July 18, 2018

The Grail in Brisbane will be hosting an exciting 2-part series of reflection afternoons during August and September, on contemporary movements in spirituality.

Session #1 ~ Reflecting on Contemporary Eco-Spirituality
Sunday 5 August, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Janet Galos, drawing on the insights of Elizabeth Johnson, Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry, Denis Edwards and others, will lead us in a reflection on why we need a new spirituality for a new era and the qualities of that new spirituality. Janet has worked in disability education, studied theology and followed interests in eco-spirituality, Christian feminism, Indigenous spiritualities and meditation.

Session #2 ~ The Wind Blows Where it Chooses (John 3:8)
Sunday 2 September, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This gathering led by Kevin Treston will explore emerging movements in contemporary spiritualities and reflect on why these movements are happening in the Christian world today. What cultural and religious influences in our world today, especially in Western cultural contexts, are generating both a recovery of traditional spiritual practices and nurturing new expression of spirituality? Kevin has worked in a ministry of teaching and consultancy for over 60 years throughout Australia and in many countries.


All are welcome to these stimulating reflections and discussions. Refreshments will be provided. Help with transport can be made available.
