FOCUSgreek: A Medical View of the Passion

Come join FOCUSgreek during Holy week Tuesday night at 8pm Kappa Delta to prepare for the crucifiction and Resurrection.   Father Kubat is coming to talk about the Passion from a medical standpoint.  It will be a fascinating talk by bringing how much Jesus suffered for us into perspective, explaining what it means to sweat blood and to have nails hammered into your wrists.

It's easy to write off the Crucifiction since Jesus is God and we sometimes assume he probably just ignored the pain; but He was human and experienced as much pain as we would if we were up there.

One more week of lent and then Easter =] Can't wait to see everyone Tuesday; Bring a friend, everyone is welcome!

Notes from Logan

Hey! I’m Logan and I’m one of the married missionaries. My wife Lynn and I have two kids—Augustine Michael (2 yrs old) and Lewis Walter (4 months). I teach the Catholic Literature Class on Wednesday evenings. My time not devoted to prayer, family, or books is spent with my disciples. This year for me has been spent on one particular issue. Every disciple I’ve worked with always asks me the same thing: what am I supposed to do with my guys in discipleship? This last summer I developed a discipleship curriculum, taking best practices from various campuses and combining them with pet theories and personal experience and lots of books. There are lots of things to tweak and change, but I have noticed a huge difference in fruitful discipleships compared to my past 4 years. I encourage all of you student-missionaries to gather best practices among yourselves and not settle for lukewarm discipleship with Jesus! Happy Lent. Logan. Burda.
