Being Church

I just returned from three weeks in Australia. Our events were wonderful experiences of sharing together our love of Christ and the Church and our desire to serve the Lord with gladness as disciples and stewards. We found that, while each parish or diocese has its particular circumstances, what we hold in common is indeed very powerful -- God's love for us in Christ through the Spirit!

My time in Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney, and Campbelltown was truly a blessing. Let us connect and stay connected in all the ways we are able, including this little blog, no matter where we live. We have much to learn from one another, and so much to celebrate.

What do you think?

Isn't it amazing that with all of our wonderful communication technology, we busy humans still regularly fail to connect on a deep spiritual level? We have managed to take our chance face-to-face encounters where we talk about the weather, one's health, and one's children and transferred them into the cyberworld where we do the same things while staring at a computer screen. We all need to be reminded that we are connected because of one person---Jesus Christ. Our relationship with him should lead us into deeper connections with each other, whether in cyberspace or the supermarket.
Leisa, you are one who is helping to make a difference in this world. Bravo!!!
