"Our Jerusalem Journey: Lenten Wisdom for Anxious Times"

April 1, Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to Noon CT

A 3-hour in-person workshop at St. Scholastica Monastery with experiential learning to deepen our journeys to Jerusalem.

Anxiety seems to be on the rise in our society. From jarring news reports to polarizing conversations, from economic unknowns to pandemic mysteries, we all experience new levels of tension that our bodies and minds absorb. Perhaps the disciples also felt greater anxiety as they approached Jerusalem with their roaming (and unpredictable) rabbi. And yet Jesus was centered and well-focused in his teachings and mission. He understood the paradox of God’s foolishness and weakness to be the greatest source of wisdom and power. How might we tap into this deeper spirituality that Jesus embodied? How might this shape the way we speak and listen to each other? How might we find greater peace both within us and around us?
