empty_tombApril is a month for the study of Jnana Yoga, an path to realization that requires analysis, discrimination, reason, and constant devotion to your goal. Your aim is liberation, freedom from all limitation.

Vedanta’s scriptures and teachers tell us that life’s misery — its pain, anxiety, and sense of imprisonment — is caused by seeing inaccurately, due to “maya.” As a jnana yogi, you may break through that framework of delusion and see only Brahman everywhere, in everything and everyone, including yourself. This is realization!

Pastor Jill UlriciIn this talk Rev. Ulrici focuses on the different ideas within Christianity on the meaning of Jesus’s death and resurrection — what is sometimes called the theology of the atonement. She explores such questions as: Did Jesus’ death make everything “right” between God and human beings? Was it necessary to satisfy God?

Rev. Ulrici is a native of Atlanta. She came to Covenant Presbyterian as the Associate pastor in 2000 and has focused on ministry to women and spiritual development of members. She believes that the inward and outward journey of faith should go hand in hand.
