“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you, O Lord.” – St. Augustine
Why are we restless? Why is life this way? Why are we here? Not just here in these bodies on this planet and in this year. But why do we exist? What is this journey in between the event we call “birth” and the one we call “death?”
Why are we filled with longing?
The questions are there. And, the answers are too.
A new and impactful video-based series is coming to our parish!
It’s called The Search, and the national reception to it has been so enthusiastic that we are bringing it here, to our parish. The Search is beautifully filmed and produced and is hosted by the well-known Catholic evangelist Chris Stefanick. The Search features scientists, artists, philosophers, and other people from all walks of life proclaiming how their searches for meaning in life led them to Jesus and the Gospel.
But The Search is not meant just to be watched . . . and it’s certainly not meant to watched alone. That’s why we are forming small groups – virtually – to watch, discuss, and truly benefit and grow from experiencing The Search.
We will meet every Monday at 7:00 pm for 7 Mondays, beginning March 1st
(if you have a scheduling conflict with one of the Mondays, don’t let that be an obstacle!).
We will start by watching together a video of about 30 minutes. We will then break into virtual small groups and discuss what we have just watched. In total, we will spend about an hour or so together. The 7 episodes ask these 7 BIG questions: What do you seek? Who am I? Why a God? What’s our Story? Who is Jesus? Am I saved? Why a Church?
If your faith is already solid, The Search will help you to deepen it.
If you’re feeling unsure, it’s for you too.
If you’re worried about your kids or grandkids, it’s a great series for you to share with them.
There’s nothing quite like it in the Catholic world. The Search proclaims the Gospel in words that modern ears are ready to hear and images that modern eyes can’t help but see and remember.
