As we approach Christmas, it gives us time to reflect on this year and the year ahead. It is a wonderful time of year to invite people to join you in church, especially those spiritually seeking and without a church home.
It is also a good time to talk with God about His will for the year ahead. Perhaps there will be a new calling or new direction for our lives. God’s whisper will guide us providing we take the time to quiet ourselves and listen, which as you know, has always been one of my personal challenges. Prayer is two-fold: praying and listening.
“Understanding is the reward given by faith. Do not try to understand in order to believe, but believe in order to understand.”
– St. Augustine
