Sometimes it takes a single voice to light the spark of enthusiasm and concern. It can come from the most unlikely source and in the strangest circumstance. One such voice in recent weeks has been raised by the young Swedish teenager with her Friday school strikes that have been taken up in country after country. Activist Greta Thunberg spent the Easter weekend in the UK and joined Extinction Rebellion protesters in London. She has told audiences that the world was facing an 'existential crisis', with climate change a major threat to the future of life on Earth.

“Diarmuid O'Murchu is a spiritual genius." -- Richard Rohr,
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Diarmuid O’Murchu in Manchester this October at the ACTA National Conference. Diarmuid’s books and writings are very well known, but the chance to spend the day with him in England is rare. We all know how the spirituality of vast numbers of Christians (and non-Christians) has been enriched by the flowering of interest in meditation and contemplation in recent years. One of the foremost teachers and practitioners in that movement is Richard Rohr, whose Centre for Action and Contemplation in New Mexico in the USA is world famous. Rohr is a Franciscan priest with an immense online following around the world.
So now try googling Richard Rohr and Diarmuid O’Murchu! You’ll find how intergral to Rohr’s practice and thinking are the teachings of Diarmuid O’Murchu.
“Diarmuid O'Murchu is a spiritual genius." -- Richard Rohr, author, The Naked Now.
