Rev. Ed Bacon, former Rector at All Saints Church in Pasadena, will be sharing about the growth of his own contemplative life over the years - what initially inspired it, what continues to sustain it, and how it grew and matured. He will be telling the “back story” of his personal spiritual journey, including the tough times, the roots of his contemplative practices, his most important epiphanies, and his foundational commitments. He will discuss (and read from) the authors, books, mentors, and poems that have challenged and nurtured his spirit over many years of ministry. And, he will make a connection between spiritual practices and a sustainable life of activism in the fight for political and social justice. In short, he will be answering the question: “What Makes ‘Sacred Resistance’ Sacred.”
The cost for this retreat is $68 ($78 with lunch).
