"Coping with Overload: A Lenten Journey with Jesus to Jerusalem"

Saturday, February 17, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon

at St. Scholastica Monastery (this session has been cancelled).


Tuesday, February 20 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. CT

via Zoom

In these times, most of us struggle to cope with overload: too much news, too many social media connections, back-to-back activities throughout the week, and more. Is this a sustainable life? During Lent we can relate a bit to the load Jesus carried on his road to Jerusalem, along with disciples' mental conundrum while following Jesus in the latter part of his ministry. Was rejection and suffering really necessary? Can't we just stay in Galilee? This workshop will deepen our awareness of the paradoxical truths that Jesus taught and modeled to his disciples, and thereby give us a way to discern between the bearing of compassionate loads from exhausting loads.
