Watch online: Contemplating the Gift of the Vowed Life in the 21st Century

If your congregation is a member of RFC, please use the RFC congregational login to access the archived webinars free of charge and to secure the member rate for the video presentations.

If your congregation is not a member, you can still purchase webinars and presentations. The site will create an account for you during the purchasing process, so that you can access the purchased videos for repeated viewing.

RFC’s content for purchase is provided in the form of video stream off our website (no CD, DVD, etc. is made available). This allows users to access the material immediately. After successful payment, the video is made available to whichever user is currently logged in (or an account is created with the email address they entered if they are not logged in). Users must be logged in with this same user to view the video. All videos that are purchased and now available will display "watch now" in the list (instead of "add to cart").

Webinar: 12/04/2013

Contemplating the gifts received when called into the vowed life will be the focus of this webinar. Our vows are a gateway into discipleship and communion. The challenge is to see the depth of meaning offered by each vow. According to Ilia Delio (2011) “heaven is not a place of disembodied spirits but an embrace of love that transforms this present earthly life with its frailties and weaknesses into the divine presence of enduring love….Heaven is not another world but this world clearly seen.” Come spend an hour clearly seeing the transformative nature of our vows.
