The third week of the 29th Sumedha Sadhana was devoted to the module "Stories: Ours, Jesus; and the Universe's"
This module was facilitated by Br. Gerard Alvarez.
Gerard Alvarez is a member of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. He has several years’ experience as a Formator, Teacher of Catechetics, Facilitator and Animator of Process in Spirituality, and in Province and Congregation Leadership.
This module offered a Spirituality of the Word for our times with symbols and rituals that breathe new life. It offered an approach to integrate spirituality and sexuality through the power of the Word, especially as found in the Gospel of Mark.
The module was very much appreciated by the participants. What they found most useful was a new appreciation for the Gospel, especially of Mark, and a new and meaningful way of reading and understanding the Gospels. Such a reading provided them hitherto unknown perspectives on the person of Jesus of Nazareth.
The module also helped participants to have better understanding of themselves and of the Universe and their place and role in it.
This module will be offered again during the next Sumedha Sadhana – October 2- December 3, 2015.
