Whether you have been married many years or are just considering marriage, integrating your marital and spiritual life can produce deeper love, intimacy, and union. “Falling in Love…Finding God” is a seven-week course based on the book of the same name by M. Bridget Brennan and Jerome L. Shen. The authors point out that loving each other leads us to greater gratitude for God’s love. “Growing in intimacy with God inspires us to greater love and intimacy with each other,” they point out.” Loving each other leads us to greater gratitude for God’s love.” These reflections on love of God and of each other will be at the heart of our exploration. They will be enhanced by our reflections upon and experiences of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola, who from the 16th century to today has led us through the deepest essentials of Christian spirituality. Our book study will include one live meeting time each week on Wednesday night at 8:00 pm (EST). Besides interacting with one another through regular discussions on Blackboard we will also meet “face-to-face” through our online Zoom meetings each Wednesday from 8 to 9 p.m. (EST). Your participation in these scheduled meetings is pertinent to the course; please mark your calendar and plan to attend. Information on how to access Zoom will be given in the Blackboard course site.
