Mystics: Mother Teresa May 7, 21 and June 4 from 10:00am – 12:00pm  We will begin our exploration of the mystics with the paradox of Mother Teresa’s long term experience of interior darkness at the same time that she carried the light of Christ into the slums of India. Participants may want to read Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, the Private Writings of the “Saint of Calcutta.”  Through prayer, reflection, discussion, reading, and some simple writing exercises, we will seek a deeper understanding of our own faith out of our encounter with the mystic. Cost is $20 per session.  Facilitator: Shirley Bennet Tormey To register, call (503) 794-8542 or email [email protected] For more information, visit www.francisspctr.com.  Franciscan Spiritual Center, 6902 SE Lake Rd, Suite 300, Milwaukie, OR 97267.
