Michael Morwood on Prayer to an “Everywhere” God



Michael Morwood, Australian author, teacher and former Roman Catholic priest will discuss “Prayer in a New Story of the Universe” Sunday, November 7, 6:30-8:00 PM at KSB’s Pushmataha Center, 360 Brewer Rd, Sedona. The event is hosted by friends of Michael Morwood.


According to Morwood, “It makes a big difference how we pray if we view God as a person in heaven or if we view God ‘everywhere.’ For many, prayer is an effort to contact an ‘elsewhere God.’ What happens when we shift our attention to an ‘everywhere God’ – a sustaining Presence in all, through all, never absent, never distant? How does this affect our beliefs? How do we pray if prayer is not about addressing an external, listening Deity? What is the new story of the Universe emerging in consciousness today?”

Morwood has over 30 years experience in retreat, education, and parish ministries. He was a member of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart for 38 years. Following the banning of his book, “Tomorrow’s Catholic,” and his silencing by Australian Archbishop George Pell in 1998, Morwood resigned from religious life and priestly ministry.

Morwood has authored several books including: “Tomorrow’s Catholic. Understanding God and Jesus in a New Millennium;” “Is Jesus God? Finding Our Faith;” “Praying a New Story;” “From Sand to Solid Ground;” and “Children Praying a New Story. A Resource for Parents, Grandparents and Teachers.”


His books are acclaimed for helping Christians re-imagine and re-evaluate their faith in light of the contemporary “story” about our universe. He challenges Christians to expand their notion of God beyond a localized, personal deity and to embrace belief in an all-pervasive Mystery beyond our human concepts. 


Attendees are invited to a potluck at 5:30PM. Morwood’s presentation begins at 6:30PM. No charge. Donations accepted. Reservations – Call Barbara Litrell 649-0135; email blitrell@aol.com.
