Created & Redeemed

I realize that not posting for almost 2 months is not exactly the best way to kick start a new blog. At any rate, things have been insanely busy for me with wedding plans, youth ministry, 2 classes, and, up until the end of March, finishing up work for the Theology of the Body Institute - Head and Heart Immersion Course (which everyone needs to take... now). That being said, I'm going to make a rough transistion to this past Saturday's Created and Redeemed Seminar presented by renowned TOB speaker, and teacher of Head & Heart, Christopher West, at Cure of Ars Parish in Merrick, NY.

For two years in a row Christopher has made the trip from PA to Long Island to give his unique and inspiring presentation of JPII's masterpiece. I sure hope it isn't the last. Having attended this same seminar once before and been blessed to attend the 5-day course, I can honestly say it was just as informing and moving as the first time. Christopher has dedicated his life's work to spreading this message and it shows. With the utmost humility, he shares his personal life story as well as the profound theological truth of Church teaching. Add in a few pop culture references, and you have one of the most rewarding speaking engagements available to all of the faithful in the Church today. There simply isn't a better resource for beginning the TOB journey than to attend one of Christopher's seminars.

I was pleasantly surprised that Christopher remembered me from January's course. I told him about the blog and my upcoming TOB for Teens talk (w/ Elizabeth Andrew) at the Proud2BCatholic Youth Fest in Huntington, NY. After catching up he was kind enough to take a picture with Elizabeth and I, instantly adding credibility to this very developmental blog!
