Encountering the Longing Self - Stories
Every other Wednesday:
February 15 and 29; March 7; May 16, 23 and 30
If we had God’s
vision we would see that life is constant change and that we
ourselves are always in a process of being formed. We
are given to experience God most intensely in our lives when we
are conscious that God is bound up in our actual life
our life-in-formation is most evident to us when we are aware of
the dynamism that is the root of our everyday reality.
In this seminar we will
consider several paradigmatic narratives of life-in-formation by persons
honestly confronting emotions of love and loss, illness, family
relationships, racial inequality and conditions of war.
The formative dynamic of longing, which is the unifying thread in
these “stories,” will enable us to reflect on similar formation events
in our own lives.
