Strange times, pandemic times we’re in, we’re living, so much has changed on so many levels.
We’re restricted from each other for school, for work, for worship.
Fundamental to most faiths, the worship therein, we’re meant to come together, have a sense of the come together, can’t be together in-person just now. Screens and social distance are the necessary norm just now.
What does that do to faith? How do we exercise our faith? How do we teach our faith to our kids in these times? More effort needed, starting with an example, striving to draw near to the perfect example, is God near?
God is near…find God in every moment, draw near, God is close…
Now not my words, but good words for sure, have a listen, God is near,
“The design that God has for each one of us is always a design of love. And the greatest joy for every
believer is to respond to that call, offering one’s entire being to the service of God and the brothers and sisters.”
“In each act of service, in every work of #mercy we perform, God manifests Himself; God sets His gaze upon the world.”
“We are always on a journey in life. Let us choose the path of God! We will discover that there are no unexpected events, no uphill path, and no night that cannot be faced with Jesus.”
“A society is all the more human to the degree that it cares effectively for its most frail and suffering members, in a spirit of fraternal love.”
These from Francis, Jorge, and grateful, so very grateful for this voice, this humble insight. In these pandemic times, to find our way, how to find our way? This is the path.
God is near, God is with us, God is waiting for us to turn, let us turn, amen, AMEN.
