Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 7: Difficult Times

Think about how freedom, death (physical or of the spirit), hope, and courage have played into your life. Yet remember that total personal freedom is not always a good thing. Being responsible for each other, being part of a faith community, means that sometimes our personal desires must be sacrificed or postponed for the good of the community. The balance between personal freedom and communal responsibility can be a delicate one. How have you managed to keep that balance in your life?
