"When Is It Good to Lose?"
Scripture References: Mark 8:34-38
From Series: "Station to Station: Finding our Way when Life is Hard"
The premise of the book is engaging Ignatian spirituality to join Jesus in his journey toward the cross and the empty tomb. Through doing so, we learn how Jesus not only endures but lives into hope when life seems unbearably hard. We begin to join our suffering to Jesus’ suffering and claim His inner strength, His ways, and the power of His love that draws us forward. We become more Christ like when life is hard. Given that so many folks are struggling with anxiety, job loss, stress of life balance, illness, and more, we turn toward the deep resources of our Christian faith; the stations of the cross and ancient spirituality.
