Beyond Belief with Father Terrance Ryan

Saturday, September 9th
9:30 am to 12:30 pm|

Third Street Center, 520 S. Third Street, Carbondale

Fr. Terry Ryan

Join Fr. Terry Ryan for a morning of presentation and meditation.

There is a belief in God that often fails to change us in any transformative way.  It is the belief in a creed, a series of statements about God.  Many people know about God. This is on the level of ideas. There is a deeper, more intimate way of knowing God, beyond thoughts and ideas.

Through deep meditation, or contemplation, we may be gifted with a direct experience of God as Love.  Religion can convey us to the door, and even open it, but only this deep prayer can take us through to Union with the Divine that carries us beyond our limited view of the world around us.
