Event Description

Who, where or what is the Holy Spirit? How do we know it’s the Spirit and not our ego or simply the voices of others in our midst? Can we rely on our traditional practices to have confidence on our Spiritual Journey? Religious Traditions offer a way of living that is wise and without fear. Is our teacher the voices of traditions, or some charismatic leaders alive in our midst? How can we have an on-going practice of discernment that is useful in daily living and in major decisions of vocation? Can we trust our elders, or do we have to be cautious and have our own experience of right discerning? Or is it a combination of our inner listening, our tradition, current teachers and/or an encounter with the New? What would be confirming signs that we are going the way of The Spirit?

Sister Meg Funk, a Benedictine nun from Our Lady of Grace Monastery of Beech Grove Indiana will give the Keynote Address. She is the author of five books in the Matter Series from Liturgical Press. The fifth book, Discernment Matters is a comprehensive teaching on the Holy Spirit and practices of discernment that is an essential part of the spiritual journey. Sister Meg brings her credentials from Catholic University, Indiana University and is the author of seven published books. She was Director of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Religious Education Office, Prioress, Director of Monastic Interreligious Dialogue Board, and has given retreats in Europe, South America and Asia. She resides at the Monastery in Beech Grove and provides opportunities for spiritual direction and on-going dialogue with Orthodox, Buddhist, Hindu and Christian monastics.
