Adult Forum: Transfigured Through Prayer

Date: Sunday, November 20
Time: 10 am
Location: Great Hall
Presenter: Susan Pitchford

Irenaeus of Lyon said that “the glory of God is a human being fully alive.” What does that look like in practice, and how do we get there? In this forum, we’ll look at the journey from the false self to our truest self, and how contemplative prayer can be one of the ways the self is transformed, even transfigured, into something that would dazzle us if we could see ourselves as God does. Society has many ways of mirroring back to us a distorted image of our self, but God desires to correct that distortion, and prayer is an important part of that process.
