“Making Sense of the Cross” at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church
3412 Haring Rd, Metairie
On Sunday, March 12th, we will begin Part One of a three-part ChurchNext series on Making Sense of the Cross. In the video-based series, Prof. David Lose invites us to set aside all our ideas and theories about the cross and instead to think of it as an experience. He asks, “What if the gospels aren’t just a record of the cross but an invitation to experience God?” As he reminds us, there’s a big difference between reading about something and actually doing it. We will also cover Parts Two and Three on March 19th and April 2nd. On March 26th, Fr. Michael will share with us a presentation on the Stations of the Cross. Consider making this part of your Lenten journey of walking with Jesus from passion and death to resurrection life.

In his touching and intimate style, Nouwen gives us four pathways that can lead us home, back to that place where God sees and loves us in a way that is beyond our words, to that place where our hearts are finally welcomed home, and transformed into that greatest Love of all. Wednesdays, March 8-April 5 in Pope Hall; program begins after 5:30 pm Eucharist, ending at 7:30 pm

Rising Strong™ Workshop Based on the work of Brené Brown
St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church, 12663 Perkins Rd, Baton Rouge
Rising Strong™ Workshop facilitated by the Rev Tommy Dillon and Lailey Jenkins
Rising Strong™ is a process based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability – the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome – is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are inevitably going to stumble and fall. The Rising Strong™ process is about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
