Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy: Richard Rohr on the Legacy of St. Francis ~ DVD
This DVD video presentation, featuring Richard Rohr, invites you to explore a Christian faith informed by contemplation, mysticism, compassion, justice and centuries of rich, Christian history. In five video segments, each a bit more than 30 minutes in length, Richard explores Atonement Theology, Eco-Spirituality, The Cosmic Christ, Orthodoxy vs. Orthopraxy and Mysticism Over Moralism.
Your small group watches and listens as Richard stimulates thoughtful and heartfelt discussion among a small group of participants. Using the separately available Participants' Workbook developed by Tim Scorer, your group takes off from there, delving more deeply into each session's theme. Group members become teachers for one another, following a personal, respectful and engaged model of adult learning.
Richard is always teaching us how to stretch our boundaries while drawing upon our rich tradition. Here he goes, as only a Franciscan can, to the man who showed us how to love all of creation, St. Francis of Assisi, and challenges us to do the same. His is a critical message for our time. —John Feister, editor, St. Anthony Messenger
