The follow-up DVD to my best selling DVD published KeepingFire_DVD_entrap_final_FRONTlast year entitled CATCHING FIRE, BECOMING FLAME: A Guide for Spiritual Transformation is now available from Paraclete Press. The new follow-up DVD is titled KEEPING THE FIRE ALIVE: Navigating Challenges in the Spiritual Life. It makes a wonderful companion for the CATCHING FIRE, BECOMING FLAME book and DVD. Like the first DVD, the new DVD consists of six 30-minute presentations by me. If you enjoyed learning from CATCHING FIRE, BECOMING FLAME, you’ll certainly enjoy KEEPING THE FIRE ALIVE.

Labor Day has come and gone — and so it’s time to pack up the barbeque grill and get back to the daily grind! September finds me returning to St. Frances Cabrini Church, Littleton CO, for a second parish mission. I begin training a third class of future spiritual directors as well as completing the final year of training with the second class in the diocese of Springfield IL. And I’m looking forward to preaching my first parish mission in the state of Kansas at St. Thomas More Church, Manhattan KS. So I’m off and running again!
