Connected to the Cross - Christ Living Within Us: Virtual Workshop Series 2020

10:00AM - 12:00PM

 

The intent of this workshop will be to invite participants into a personal journey of connecting their lives up with the inward cross. In the book Following Jesus, Henri Nouwen writes, "This is they mystery of the Christian life. It is not that God came to take our burden away or to take our cross away or to take our agony away. No. God came to invite us to connect our burden with God's burden, to connect our suffering with God's suffering, to connect our pain to God's pain."  Through the cross and Jesus’ suffering, God connects with us and we ultimately connect with God's intentions and the world’s suffering. Through our inward cross, God connects with us the life and death of Jesus. It's in that experience, we begin to live out the Apostle Paul's words, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me..." (Galatians 2:20-21, CEB).  This will be a contemplative retreat that will offer content as well as space for prayer, reflection, sharing within the "virtual circle," and deepening of one's spiritual life.
