With the start of a new year, many of us make resolutions related to losing weight and getting thin. Well, I can’t help you in that department, but I can help you start off the year by experiencing thin places! In her new book, Braving the Thin Places: Celtic Wisdom to Create a Space for Grace, the amazingly talented Julianne Stanz shares her profoundly personal insights and draws on her Irish-Celtic heritage to help us explore those times and holy places of transformation.
Thin places refer to the belief that God’s presence is normally veiled from human awareness except for certain places or moments where/when that veil seems to be quite thin. Inspired by faith and guided by spiritual practices, we can experience each thin place as a point of departure on a sacred journey to a truer understanding of who we are meant to be.
Catechist’s Journey is proud to announce that Loyola Press will be hosting a free webinar with Julianne Stanz on Braving the Thin Places on Thursday, January 27, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. central time. I am honored to serve as the host for this hour with Julianne.
