Nevertheless, for those of you living within driving distanceof 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 PaulJanuary 29 Servant, Teacher, Prophet, Son The Jesus of the GospelsFebruary 5 God from God, Light from Light The Jesus of the CouncilsFebruary 12 Sell All You Have Jesus and Religious LifeFebruary 19Let My People Go - Jesus the LiberatorFebruary 26, 2013 Mystical Body - Jesus in the LiturgyClick here for driving directions.
