There's no MOVEMENT unless we MOVE... beyond the Christian hot-tub, beyond the comfy places where it's easy, beyond a fleeting moment, and into our lives with the power to transform the planet....
The big question: How truly different are we as a result of that "powerful" Christian event (particularly Holy Mass)? What lasting commitments did it MOVE us to make... the basis for a continued outpouring of His transforming grace into our lives? Marriages? Families? Churches? World?
Our profession may declare what we think, but our calendar declares what we truly believe. It is the measure of what we truly value, what we really live for... what we worship. Think about it. If a child's coach called for a new commitment for even tomorrow night, would it not go on the calendar? Would we not rearrange our lives to make it happen?
Particularly as families, do we not need to more fully discover God alive in our relationships? For our homes to mean "God Encounter" that radiates to the world around us? A vitality beyond soul-numbing, relationship-robbing, gift-depleting gadgetization? (Ok, strong here... because we struggle with it) Doesn't our formation in Him, in our homes, merit our commitment?
This week put a flag in the sand for Jesus Christ.
The Grace from His Eucharistic Presence in Mass is meant to spill out of our lives and into the world, that the Holy Communion we receive correspond to a Holy Community we live.
This week schedule just 60 minutes as a family to Encounter Love- Him who is our very identity and mission. He offers us this sacred (and fun!) time to talk and pray based upon this Sunday's Readings. Check out the FREE, downloadable, new-every-week
Live IT Gathering Guide.
Get a special Live IT Candle. The idea is that when you gather, you light it... and once a month, bring it to an IGNITE event where it is joined by hundreds of others to illuminate our Eucharistic Lord on the Burning Bush. A powerful, marvelous image of the Mover engaging us all in His Movement.
This really can be a playbook of our ultimate adventure, of discovering and dynamically living the "best version of ourselves" (Matthew Kelly).
We Image the Trinity. Let IT be!
