Topic: John Tauler, OP. Tauler, 1300-1361, spoke to laity seeking an intense inner prayer life. He stressed abandoning transitory things along with not clinging to our special devotions. “We cannot be led by God to our deepest ground if we do practices only of our own choosing," he said, and added, "If you don't want to travel a higher road, then forget what I am saying.”

Saturday, Aug 16, 9 am to noon. Refreshments served. Workshop is free, but a freewill donation is most welcome. Contact
