The Center for Religion and Spirituality invites you to a special, intimate Lenten conversation with Dr. Jim Finley on God's call to let go of fear in exchange for God's grounding and sustaining love.  

Dr. Finley will lead a reflection on:

  • Jesus’ teaching on the primacy of love that permeates life and death
  • Prayer as a daily rendezvous with God’s loving presence transforming us into itself.
  • Cultivating the habit of Christ like love for ourselves others and all things as we go through our day
