Growing in Grace; a Lenten Webinar Series

The journey through the Great Fast is meant to be one of discovery. Discovery of the image of God, within ourselves and others. Discovery of God’s infinite love for us on the cross. Discovery of the gift of grace that can lead us from darkness into the light of spring.

We are the soil. We work to care for the soil of our hearts so that we may produce fruit for His Kingdom. Join us as we explore the wisdom of the Fathers and Mothers of the Eastern Church to discover the treasure within our hearts. We prepare the soil, we sow the seeds and we bear the fruit.

The Three Temptations of Christ Webinar

In Scripture, we read the account of Jesus retreating to the desert to pray and to fast. There he is tempted by Satan three times and three times he refuses to accept what Satan has to offer. In our sessions, we will examine each of these three temptations to discover their meaning and how we may see ourselves in moments of temptation throughout our lives. We will also explore what spiritual strength we may gain from the example of Jesus. Sessions will consist of a presentation and will conclude with prayer.

Fr. Mike will discuss the increasing nature of temptation and spiritual combat and he will explore some tools in responding to Pride from the Eastern Christian Tradition.
