Saturday, October 28 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Visitation North - All Shall Be Well: A Morning with Julian of Norwich

“All Shall Be Well: A Morning with Julian of Norwich” will be facilitated by Patty Merlo, MPM.

In 1372, Julian received 16 revelations centered on the Passion of Jesus. These visions led her to a radical decision: to live her life as a hermit enclosed in a cell attached to a church in Norwich, England. Then, during 20 years of prayer and reflection, God revealed the meaning of the 16 revelations and she came to see that they were intended not for her alone, but for all Christians. Today, as we face the pain and divisions of our own times, her insights can provide us with the strength, wisdom, comfort and healing we seek. During this reflective morning, participants will explore Julian’s life and message by means of presentation, personal reflection and conversation.

Cost is $25; please register one week in advance at visitationnorth@ihmsisters.org  or 248-433-0950.

Saturday, November 11 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Visitation North: The Jewish Roots of Our Christian Faith

“The Jewish Roots of Our Christian Faith” will be facilitated by  Annemarie S. Kidder, PhD

The early Christians had the Old Testament as their only Scriptures. Only Jewish images and theological concepts were used and appropriated to explain the incarnation, the mystery of God becoming human and the notion of God forming a chosen people and a new creation. This session will explore several key concepts of the Jewish faith tradition as it existed in Jesus’ day, including creation, covenant, redemption, sacrifice and atonement, along with the Law and key leaders of the Jewish people, such as Abraham, Moses and David. These concepts are largely lost to us today, but they are crucial in order to better understand the metaphors and symbolism used by the Apostle Paul and found throughout the New Testament.

Cost is $25; please register one week in advance at visitationnorth@ihmsisters.org  or 248-433-0950.

Please note that Visitation North is not handicapped-accessible.
