Weekend Lectures

John Philip Newell is honored to be the featured speaker at the 2019 Mercy-Presentation Speakers Forum. The theme for his three lectures will be Boundless: A Celtic Vision of the Sacred in All Things. Celtic spirituality celebrates the essential sacredness of all things. It remembers John the Beloved as leaning against Jesus at the Last Supper. It was said of him in the Celtic world that he therefore heard the heartbeat of God. He became a symbol of the practice of listening, listening deep within ourselves, deep within one another, and deep within the Earth and every creature and life form. We will explore the implications for today of this ancient way of seeing. 

There will be three lectures on October 18 and 19. The cost of this event is $15 per session of $40 for all three sessions. You can pre-register by emailing Marilyn Stack. Payment may be made at the door or by mailing a check, payable to “The Speakers Forum”, to Marilyn Stack at 21 Bonavista Street, St. John’s, NL A1E 2N5. 

Each session will include a lecture by John Philip Newell with additional time for reflection, discussion, and refreshments.
