December 22, 2020, Adrian, Michigan – Noted writer, speaker, and workshop leader Diarmuid O’Murchu offers a virtual presentation, “Incarnation: Christianity’s New Horizon,” from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST Saturday, January 16, 2021, through Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
Diarmuid, a member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order and a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, presents incarnation as a celebration of God’s embodied presence – not only in the person of Jesus but in all forms of embodied presence that adorn creation. This newly expanded horizon carries several implications for how we are called to live out our faith today.
A social psychologist, Diarmuid counts among his recent books Incarnation: A New Evolutionary Threshold (2017); Beyond Original Sin: Recovering Humanity’s Creative Urge (2018); and When the Disciple Comes of Age (2019).
The cost to attend is $30 and registration is required to receive the live stream link. Limited scholarships are available. Register at www.webercenter.org and click on “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
