Second Faculty Retreat, Authenticity and Sacrifice: The Search for Meaning and Goodness in the Context of Life's Challenges
Directed by Dr. Theresa Bartolotta
November 6, 2013
In this life each of us bears many burdens; some are visible, others are
harder to see. The topic of this retreat will be the convergence of
work and personal life in the context of sacrifice. What does it mean to
struggle? What is the impact on work life? How can good come of
sacrifice? What is the good? How can we remain strong and vibrant as we
work to find the true meaning and goodness in sacrifice?
