I suspect the number of Commonweal readers out here in my particular part of Northern California may number in the single digits. Nevertheless, for those of you living within driving distance of Concord, CA (about 25 miles east of Oakland, CA), let me offer an invitation to a new Adult Formation program my wife and I are facilitating.
It’s called “Encountering Jesus” and the idea is to look at various images and understandings of Jesus in the history of the Church that have powerfully shaped Christian prayer and spirituality. The hope is not merely to impart information, but to allow for the kind of reflection that can deepen our lives of prayer and draw us closer to Jesus.
The themes for the sessions as as follows:
January 22 “Messiah Jesus” – The Jesus of Paul
January 29 Servant, Teacher, Prophet, Son – The Jesus of the Gospels
February 5 “God from God, Light from Light” – The Jesus of the Councils
February 12 “Sell All You Have” – Jesus and Religious Life
February 19 “Let My People Go” – Jesus the Liberator
February 26, 2013 Mystical Body – Jesus in the Liturgy
