Even where there are deepening divisions, love is possible. Even when there is suffering, joy is possible. Even in the midst of brokenness, rebuilding is possible. A simple, singing monk from the 13th century just might be able to teach us what is still possible—for us, today.
Join our virtual journey as we follow the path of the young Francis, through the narrow stone streets of Assisi and along the dirt trails of the Umbrian countryside. Share in his story of transformation from rich kid to joy-filled fool for Christ. Along with Clare and their many followers, Francis’ full-hearted embodiment of the way of Jesus sparked a deeply felt renewal within the Church. Their lives still speak to us and the church today. Encounter God with us over this audio-guided, five-walk series in the Divine Way (Via Divina).
Each audio-guided excursion will help you immerse yourself in the love of Jesus through the stories of Francis and Clare, from scripture and fellow sojourners
