Rotorua Community Day, 17th June

Waikato and Bay of Plenty Community Day


Glimpses of God Through the Kitchen Window!


At this Community Day we will be guided by Raymond Eberhard, as we explore the writings of renowned author James Finley (pictured) on ‘Experiencing the Presence of God’ and Tim Roberts on ‘Attuning Myself to God’s Love More Closely’.


The two topics blend beautifully together and draw our attention to ‘experiencing the presence of God during the business of our daily lives’.


Raymond has been meditating in the Christian tradition for six years, and in other eastern traditions prior to that.  He is facilitator for the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions of NZCCM.  He facilitates two activities for St Peter’s Church in Katikati, chairing a committee enabling support for school children to cope with loss and grief, and also facilitating a monthly Mens’ Breakfast.  He and his wife Maureen lead a meditation group at St Peters and an online group.  Formerly he was General Manager for a Rudolf Steiner based residential care facility for intellectually disabled people for almost 25 years. Raymond is a Benedictine Oblate.
