Comments on WITNESSES TO RESURRECTION 2019
I found Witness to Resurrection to be a beautifully written and insightful journey into the Easter season. Kathleen MacInnis Kichline has brought together many well rounded and interactive questions about the texts as well as a variety of art, including pictures, music and even interpretive dance. I particularly appreciated her insight into the characters involved, as well as many of the nuances of the text that she brought forward that are often missed by others. I came away with the feeling of the scriptures being opened in a fresh and perhaps more personal way. In those private moments or with a group of fellow seekers, an online retreat can adjust with you and expand to fill your needs.

Our parishioners loved the mixture of media, art and perspective. It was especially effective when used in groups as the questions led to lively discussion. Overall, it was very positively received.

At times just quietly and beautifully thought provoking.

What a wonderful retreat! We have gained a much deeper insight to the true meaning and implications of the Resurrection and Easter. We had always thought of the Resurrection as a historic event but your beautiful words brought us to realize that it is still an active source of faith and love in the world today. The artwork in all if the series were so moving and beautiful—especially the work by Caravaggio of Thomas and Jesus. That is such a shocker! Thank you for the series.

The artwork and music connection was something new for me so perhaps why I enjoyed it the most.

This was the first time I feel I have really "done" Easter and was present to its mystery and gifts the entire season.

How did WITNESSES TO RESURRECTION happen?
Working in parishes for many years, I have observed the spiritual
fatigue that often accompanies the end of Lent. Though intended as
preparation for Easter, Lent can eclipse Easter in terms of spiritual
commitment and enthusiasm. Concerned that we had lost our focus, I
originally offered WITNESSES TO RESURRECTION as a live Easter Retreat.
The joyous Alleluia of participants inspired me to incorporate all the
modalities of the retreat experience into creating an online version,
now in its fourth year.
