My Cup Runneth Over: Finding Balance and Peace
When we answer our Lord’s call to be fruitful and multiply, we volunteer for martyrdom. Through sacrificial love for others (whether our children, spouses, aging parents or strangers), we learn to die to ourselves and to find true life in Christ. We’ll explore thought patterns that impact our ability to grow in Christ, and how taking on Christ’s yoke lightens the burden of the crosses we carry. Further, we'll ask how we need to take care of the caregivers, and what Orthodox Self-Care might mean.
