Making A Difference  

The Benedictine Path of Transformation


A Six-Week Lenten Study and Reflection by Phone


A Special Prgram Announcement from Jane TomaineJanuary, 2013

Hello!   As you are a subscriber to my newsletter The Benedictine Cyber Toolbox, I wanted to let know know about a Lenten program that I'm offering this year. 


Before I share the deatils, please take a moment to consider your answers to these questions:


Is there anything that would you like to see different in your life? 


What might you like to be different in yourself?


Do you feel drawn in a new direction or have a desire to pursue greater depth and meaning in your spiritual walk? 


What would you like changed in the way that you follow Christ? 


If any of these questions resonate with you or if you would appreciate the wisdom and support of your sisters and brothers in Christ from around the country during Lent, please join my program...



Making a Difference 

The Benedictine Path of Transformation 


Mining the Rule of St. Benedict as guide and resource, we'll explore paths to making a difference in prayer, relationships, priorities, commitments, service to others and in our daily walk.   


Our journey together will take place by conference call making it possible to join with others around the country.  These phone sessions will include teaching moments, small and full group discussions, opportunities for individual reflection, silence and prayer
This will be my fourth program using telephone conferencing technology which works beautifully and even allows small break-out groups.   We will also use screen sharing technology in some of the sessions. 
Read on for the details!
