Season 7: Week 5 | Suffering: Dying That We Might Live

The seasons of the church year are meant to teach us something about the spiritual life we need to learn. In fact, by entering into these seasons we experience the deeper dynamics and rhythms of the spiritual life by walking closely with Jesus and learning from him as we go. In this season of the Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership podcast, we are privileged to prepare and walk through the season of Lent together.

    These words offer such depth and remind me of the real purpose especially in liminal space which we now find ourselves in. To embrace this journey as necessary and indeed essential to formation and growth is actually a gift. Thank you again Ruth for your understanding and insight into the human condition and our deepest spiritual needs through transformation. A real blessing.
