Ordinary Time

Turn Around

It is as if we are on a moving walkway. If we do nothing, we will simply be carried along by the materialism and consumerism of our culture. We have to be willing to turn around, to walk against the flow of the culture, to push back against the assumptions and values of a nation that refuses to see that its actions are having and will continue to have severe consequences for the entire world.

Encourage

Encouragement will convert someone’s fearful heart, or lonely heart, or a heart of stone into the new heart that God promises. Encouragement is how courage gets into our hearts. Encouragement produces courage; encouragement makes us strong, very strong. It is as simple and profound as that. Encouragement: you have the need; you have the power.
