Conversion? What Kind do I Need at this Time in My Life?
We know our conversion toward a deeper union with God is ongoing, but conversion from what to what? More specifically, what kind of conversion do I need at this particular time in my life journey? As you might guess, conversion is a rich and varied experience, not a once-and-for-all event, and it takes different forms. These reflections and discussions will explore four major forms of conversion: religious, psychic, moral, and intellectual.
All four webinars are now available in our webinar archives.
March 6: Religious Conversion: Being Grasped by God
What happens when the human heart discovers that God is real? What happens when I "fall in love" with God?
March 13: Psychic Conversion: The Dissolving of Psychic Scarring
Things happen to all of us that we cannot shake. The memory is seared into our feeling memory and haunts us. How can we be healed of memories?
March 20: Moral Conversion: From Short-Term Satisfaction to Long-Term Good
Life is full of decisions. How do I turn from addiction, from degrading relationships, from selfishness, from egocentricity?
March 27: Intellectual Conversion: Monitoring My Own Soul
Does discernment have a pattern? Can I learn it? Can I learn how to keep my eye on my own motivation? Can I really come to know how I operate?
