I have been saying since this year began that 2016 is the year I celebrate 20 years of preaching. Guess what I discovered today? It's really been 21 years. Hahahahaha! Did I have a plan to celebrate this anniversary? I did want to do something and God made it happen: I am preaching Sunday, 25 September 2016 in the church I first preached in 21 years ago. What a feeling!!! To look back over 21 years of preaching God's Word, I am struck once again by God's AMAZING GRACE. I have had the privilege of being a vessel for the Holy Spirit to enter in and write sermons that challenge not only the hearers, but also me the writer. I have grown in such a way that I find surprising.
God REALLY loves us. And if we open ourselves to God, AMAZING things happen. We grow in such a way that makes us want to tell the world.
Are you telling the world?
No? Attune yourself to the ways God wants you to tell the world.
Yes? Continue to celebrate our God, allowing God to stretch you.
I never thought I would be someone who proclaims God's Word. And I must say, the more God puts me in uncomfortable situations, the happier I am. The more peaceful I am. The more grateful I am.
I will be celebrating 21 years of preaching by preaching where I started, St. Elizabeth Catholic Church.
A Look Inside My Search
In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.
