December 7, 2017, Have No Anxiety,
presented by Br. Bob Roddy, OFM Conv.
The Advent-Christmas Season, while a joyful time for family
and friends, often becomes fraught with tension and distress.
We lose sight of the wonder, the joy and the inspiration that
this season offer. We will look at what the Scriptures and
the saints recommend to alleviate the dis-stress of the season.
December 14, 2017, Creating Peace Begins with Oneself,
presented by Jayne Krim.
We all want to live a life filled with more peace, but we may
think peace is unattainable for us. Peace is not only possible,
it is available for all. We may not find it where we tend to look
for it. Where do we find it? How do we possess it? True peace
is closer than we think. Peace begins within. It begins within
and manifests out.
