Gospel Way to Freedom and Love

Many of us spend time and energy seeking the “glittering” things we think will make us happy, only to find that deep joy and peace and love have eluded us. Br. David Vryhof invites us to discover the “freedom of the children of God” (Romans 8:21) that comes when we ground our identity in God, rather than in those things that the world counts most valuable.

Br. David Vryhof offered this online workshop on
Saturday, October 2, 9:00am to 12:00pm EDT
