Compassion vs. Codependency
S. Janet Born , OSF

Compassion is the learned practice of empathizing with others as they face struggles and suffering in their lives and treating them with loving kindness. Co-dependency is characterized by the act of sacrificing one’s own needs to solve another’s problems or ease their pain. We will discuss how God calls us to compassion, and we will learn to identify patterns of codependency in our own lives and how to move from codependent giving to compassionate living.

4 Week Lenten Series
with S. Barbara Leonhard OSF
Thurs., Feb 15th, 22nd, March 1st, 8th
$15 per Session or $55 for all
“The culture and history from which particular spiritualities arise give unique emphasis to certain themes and perspectives. In this Lenten series, we will explore together some of the themes highlighted in Celtic Spirituality and listen for how they might give new meaning to our Lenten journeys:
- The sacredness of creation; “thin places”
- Prayer woven throughout the day – in the ordinary
- The understanding of divine presence woven throughout both what we perceive as blessing and what we know as hardship
- An understanding of Jesus drawn primarily from John’s gospel”
You may register here for all four evenings for $55, or you may register for individual programs for $15 each.
