Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

We are thrilled with the response The Great Adventure studies have received around the country. This coming fall we will be rolling out two new studies: Exodus and 1 Corinthians. Both of these studies were developed by my colleague Dr. Tim Gray. I pray that the Lord will continue to use the studies to conform people to Christ and as always embrace the beauty of the Catholic faith. Praise the Lord!

Is There Meaning In Your Suffering?

I know that many of you are going through difficult times in your life right now. In the midst of suffering the question always comes up, is there meaning attached to my suffering? The answer is yes. I draw from the writings of Pope John Paul II in my presentation. I hope it is encouraging to you.

Danielle Rose Final Concert in Duluth.

Danielle Rose final concert in DuluthYesterday my whole family drove to Duluth Minnesota to watch the final concert of Danielle Rose. She put together a wonderful concert as her final musical statement before entering a convent in Texas. What an inspiration it was to see her friends and family turn out to honor her and participate with her as she honored the Lord.   I will keep you updated as to when her next two CD's become available. She has already recorded a CD that honors Mother Teresa and a second CD about vocations. Well done Danielle!!!

Are You A Slave? Want To Be Free?

Exodus bible study by Jeff Cavins Freedom from bondageDo you feel like you are a slave to something? A job? A relationship? A pattern of thinking or are you in a rut in the way you respond to loved ones? Many people today confess that they love Christ and would do anything for him yet their personal lives are marked not by freedom but bondage. Many are enslaved to pornography, alcohol, pain pills or food. Still many others are enslaved to patterns of thinking about others or themselves. Perhaps the most painful form of bondage is the trap of unforgiveness. The good news is that Jesus Christ has come to set us free from bondage and give our lives purpose. This is what we will focus on this fall in our new ten-week study called "Exodus: Called To Freedom." I will be teaching this study in the Twin Cities at three parishes. This is part of the Great Adventure Bible Study series put on by the John Paul II Center out of the Church of St. Paul in Ham Lake Minnesota.

The Exodus event can be seen as the defining moment in Israel's history, for it was then that God called Israel out of slavery in Egypt and to a life of freedom as His people. Adventures in Exodus: Called to Freedom looks through the lens of Christ and the Church to show that more than just seeking to free His people physically from the domination of Pharaoh, God desired to free His people from the far more sinister tyrant of sin so they could live the authentic freedom that belongs to children of God. Because of this, the Exodus story is not just Israel's story, it is our story as well; it tells us who God is and what He calls us to be. In addition to the core message of freedom we will also look into the following themes:

| Trace the themes of "name," "knowing," and "service" through Exodus and learn their significance to Israel and us.

| Learn the personal significance of God's revelation of His name, "I AM".

| See the Exodus as far more than a dramatic rescue mission and understand the goal of freedom from sin.

| Discover the purpose behind the plagues on Egypt.

| Learn the key to authentic freedom.

| Discover that God's Law is in fact a reflection of God's love and that the law arises in the context of a relationship of love

| Understand the centrality of the Sabbath as it relates to the freedom of God's people.
