The Beatitudes:

Key To Peace & Healing In Holy Week and in the Worst of Times

April 9 - 11, 2020

The most difficult Christian doctrine is not the Trinity nor the Resurrection, but the Beatitudes — that we are to be happy and blessed when poor, mourning, insulted, persecuted, and suffering injustice.

We will explore what Jesus meant in the Beatitudes — how he lived these, especially in Holy Week and how Jesus empowers us to also “be happy and blessed” wherever we struggle. Where we are not able to live the Beatitudes, we will begin to heal the underlying hurts so in everything God works for good with those who love him. (Rm 8:28)
