Upcoming Events: PTS Booktalks EVERYDAY CONTEMPLATIVE: THE WAY OF PRAYERFUL LIVING WITH DR. ROGER OWENS

When: Sept. 16, 2022
Time: 5:00 p.m. EST
Where: In-person and online

Join us via webinar or in person for the Fall 2022 Launch of BookTalks, during which we will celebrate faculty member the Rev. Dr. L. Roger Owens' most recent book, Everyday Contemplative: The Way of Prayerful Living (Upper Room Books, 2022). In Everyday Contemplative, Dr. Owens asks a central question: What does it mean to live a contemplative life? He then explores various dimensions of this kind of living for the remainder of the book. Our time together will include a robust conversation about how Dr. Owens, professor of Christian spirituality and ministry at PTS and an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, came to write this particular book during the pandemic. Along the way, we will learn from him about seven aspects of ordinary contemplative life that he describes in the book. All participants will be invited to ask questions of Dr. Owens, and all those in attendance will be invited to a celebratory reception and book signing as well.


To register for the event, whether in person or on Zoom webinar, contact Holly McKelvey. She will provide the location of the BookTalk on campus or the Zoom webinar link for those who wish to attend from off campus.
