Living Gracefully in an Age of Anxiety
“To be a saint is to work and weep for the broken and suffering of the world, but it is also to be strangely light of heart in the knowledge that there is something greater than the world that mends and renews. Maybe more than anything else, to be a saint is to know joy.”
As God’s friends, people of the Spirit, we are called to practice resurrection, to embody divine promise and human possibility in the way we live, the choices we make, and the commitments we keep. We are the ones who say Yes even when the world says No. But that can sometimes be challenging and costly work. What are the formative resources of our faith which sustain us along the way? How does our common life in Christ nurture the wisdom, courage, and divine imagination required for times like these?
Over the course of our retreat weekend, the Rev. Jim Friedrich will curate times of reflection and conversation as we explore the ways and means of living gracefully. Jim has been an artist/priest for over half a century as liturgical creative, filmmaker, photographer, musician, storyteller, teacher and writer
