Flourishing

Leaders: Peter Parr and Heather-Jane Ozanne

What does it mean to flourish? What can the life of Jesus teach us about flourishing? There is a shift underway in spirituality today, from a heaven-focused spirituality which placed great emphasis on transcending the world and the human condition to one which leads to an appreciation of the interconnectedness of all life and deeper engagement with humanity, and a realization of our place within the whole cosmos. This shift in emphasis is leading people to a greater need and the desire to work together for the common good and a world where all can flourish.
