I want to invite you to be very still for a moment. Look inside yourself. Search your heart. What do you want? What do you really want? What do you want more than anything?
It’s a scary question, isn’t it? But the truth is, what we all long for, thirst for, hunger for and yearn for is love. We want communion, intimacy, fulfilment, ecstasy, bliss and contentment. We don't want these things temporarily, we want them exclusively and forever.
We know, deep down, that no human being could ever satisfy this ache in our hearts for this kind of love. Yet sadly, so many people chase earthly pleasures and human relationships to quench this terrifying emptiness they can't ignore. Silence can be scary because it allows us time to realise we aren’t perfectly happy.
But I have exciting news! There is someone who alone can satisfy this ache for love you experience; Jesus Christ. The Theology of the Body provides the roadmap to Jesus. This course, will crack your rib cage open and help you direct your desire for infinity to infinity, and your ache for God to God. No longer will you run from your desires, or try to satisfy them with earthly pleasures that always leave you bitter, empty and resentful. It will show you how to reorient your heart to the only person who can give you the love you crave!
If this is getting you fired up, I look forward to welcoming you on a journey that will redirect the course of your Christian life. If you think this course could be useful, forward it to a friend or family member who may want to come with you!
