My Latest Presentation – “The Journey to Jesus”

I just did another presentation last night.  This one is called “The Journey to Jesus.”  I begin with talking about what “journey” means along with “desert” and “Lent” before discussing the necessity of silence.  You can view the video at http://www.renewaloffaith.org/video—the-journey-to-jesus.html Hope you enjoy it.  It’s about 1 hour 10 minutes. Peace, Fr. Jeff
