Identifying important aspects of Church Life. “Why we sometimes Disagree” – Panel of Bob Alexander, Michelle Shaffer and Dr. Catherine Sims on November 4, 2020, 7-8 pm

Join the IPL Associate Directors for a panel discussion on important aspects of Church Life….and why we sometimes disagree.  There are many aspects to life in a Catholic parish; Liturgy, Sacraments, Community, Faith Formation, and living out the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.  However, we do not always agree on how to carry out or to which of the above to give priority.  This one-hour workshop will offer ideas, case studies and more in how we can best work together as the Body of Christ to face the challenges that arise within staff, among parishioners and between parish leadership and parishioners.

FREE ONLINE BIBLE STUDY WITH FATHER JOHN KARTJE

LIVING ON THE EDGE OF CHAOS: BIBLICAL LESSONS FOR FINDING HOPE IN THE FACE OF FEAR

Check out the Q & A Live Event with Fr. Kartje on “Living on the Edge of Chaos.”

From Cain and Abel through the persecution of the early Church, the Bible is replete with accounts of fear and violence as reactions to God’s desire for humanity. What Sacred Scripture makes clear, however, is that there is a pathway through fear to hope. Join us as we carefully explore biblical examples drawn from the historical books and the prophets, Wisdom literature, the Gospels, and other New Testament texts to illustrate how the sweep of salvation history often follows a journey from order, through chaos, to a new reality shaped by the Kingdom of God.

Join Father John Kartje, rector of Mundelein Seminary, for an online Bible study exploring the pathway from chaos and fear to hope.

REGISTER HERE for this online bible study to receive the recordings when they are released later this month!
