In this episode, I talk about how I thought that play would be a lot about having a lighter heart after some challenging years but then with time discovering that it is more about being able to play in the midst of on-going challenges. It is about the role of play and prayer can support perseverance and growth through the contexts and circumstances of our lives – whether they feel heavy or light.
I referred to loving Fr. Isaiah’s Receive Me and many of his other songs, available on YouTube (listed as Brother Isaiah since they were published prior to his ordination earlier this summer).
I also talked about loving my course from Franciscan University of Steubenville this summer, as well as my plans to couple progress towards the MA in Catholic Studies with some workshops from Franciscan at Home during semesters in which it would not be prudent to take full courses.
