Encounters with Jesus: Invitations and Challenges

$40.00

During his public ministry, Jesus did more than just preach.  In fact some of the best lessons we can learn from him are those taught through his encounters with the people he met on the road.  In his travels, Jesus met different types of people.  He met the poor and the rich, the sick and the healthy.  He not only responded to those who reached out to him, but also knew how to reach out to those who were unaware of what they needed from Him.  On February 10, 2020 there will be a followup to this program that will highlight some of these encounters and through the use of Ignatian Contemplation, we will immerse ourselves fully in each gospel story  Be there and have your own private encounter with Jesus.
