Feeling like you need a time out? Busy lives often leave us feeling tired, lacklustre and spiritually empty. A Slow Down Day is your opportunity to rest your body and refresh your spirit. Each day consists of thought-provoking presentations on a spiritual topic combined with ample time for personal reflection and prayer; small group faith sharing is an option. Come slow down with us by following the Star to an oasis of peace.
One of the foremost moral theologians of the last century wrote, “Morality can never involve merely an abstract, lifeless system of imperatives, an accumulation of laws or precepts. It has to do with love for love, the response of a person living in a community of persons, to the individual call of the living God, a response throughout the whole of life [Haring, Bernard, Morality is for Persons, 1971, p. 20.] The identification of morality with abstract law and life-denying commandments is pervasive. How do we revision moral living as the call to fullness of life? With the law of love as our command, we will relook at what it means to live a ‘good life.’
