From Resistance to Rebirth

A small plant grows in a sandy desert

We have a wealth of spiritual resources to respond to life's problems. Resistance, lamentation, transformation and rebirth: these and others help us meet the challenges of our lives. This Lenten season, we will explore and strengthen the gifts we are given to face adversity.
