Among Women Espresso Shot #47 – Nunc Coepi

Download Episode

Welcome to Episode 47 of the Among Women “Espresso Shot” – a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.

Today’s topic: Nunc Coepi

In this espresso shot, I describe the spiritual principle of Nunc Coepi, a Latin phrase that translates as “Now I begin.” This is especially meaningful as we live through Lent. It addresses our need for courage and perseverance as we face difficulties, trials, or failures.

Also, on a personal note, I relate some of my recent health issues that led to an unexpected hiatus from the podcast, as it relates to this topic. It is a joy to be back!
