Workshop: "Live Jesus! The Relational Mystery at the Heart of the Gospel" with Dr. Wendy Wright

The LMU Center for Religion and Spirituality invites you to this online workshop with spirituality scholar Wendy Wright, Ph.D.

In this workshop, we will look at the transformative wisdom of the exchange of hearts with focus on Luke 1: 26-38 and 39-45, the Annunciation of the divine messenger to Mary, and the subsequent Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth. These passages, in the Salesian reading, reveal the dynamism of the divine heart and ultimately the relational mystery at the core of the Gospel. They illustrate the process through which radical transformation of self and world takes place.  We will look at various spiritual ractices including “living in the midst of busyness,” cultivating liberty of spirit, and “birthing Jesus.”
