What is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross? How can I talk about and celebrate the Feast of the Holy Cross with my family? Is the only path to spiritual growth and new life through the cross? I’m feeling the heavy burden of my cross, where is my triumph? What is the message parents need to hear most in this moment in history about forming their kids? How can I prepare my young adult child (and myself) for a successful send-off into mission? How is a ‘kingdom journey’ different than a trip, vacation or retreat?
I avoid the cross, I can say that. God’s so good, if we don’t pick it up, He puts it in our hands… and because of it I’m better and closer to Him. -Kari
Do I want the path to new life, joy and peace? I say, yes! But if someone asked me: Do you want the cross? … not really. -Tom
The Currans reflect on ‘faith vs. doubt’ and give examples of how difficult struggles lead to triumph. Tom talks about the message he spoke to Catholic school parents and reads an excerpt from the book Kingdom Journeys: The Lost Spiritual Discipline by Seth Barnes, founder and president of Adventures in Missions. Kari shares stories from the send-off party for Mary Grace and continues to discuss their smartphone rules for teens.
