The spiritual journey often takes twists and turns through territory that is uncharted and unexplored. It's so easy to become disoriented, lost, and even discouraged. Where do we go for direction? How do we find our way? In this follow-up to his best selling Catching Fire, Becoming Flame (book and DVD series), Father Albert Haase, OFM, mines the insights of our rich spiritual tradition and offers six presentations which become a road map and guide for the difficult terrain of the soul. Topics include: Near Occasions of Grace and Spiritual Direction, Resisting Temptations, Dryness, Darkness, Desolation, or Depression?, Making Sense of Suffering, Living in the Present Moment, and The Agenda of the Ego. Keeping the Fire Alive: Navigating Challenges in the Spiritual Life blazes and crackles with timeless spiritual wisdom taught by a wise seasoned teacher. This DVD is highly recommended for individuals and parish study groups interested in spiritual formation and growth. A simple Study Guide is included.
