Prayer and Sacrifice Increases Our Light Shine on Everyone:
Communal invitation: By prayer and sacrifice (fasting), we can stop wars in people’s hearts, the de-escalation of violence. Make a healthy sacrifice not an unhealthy sacrifice for each other.
Grandma Church: “Love You” “ Forgive You"
Church is to be more like Grandma. Not judged! Not intending anyone’s excommunication! But being lifted up by Grandma Church’s prayer at the altar: Forgive you and I love you.
A Brief Reflection
For those involved in Bible Study - Part One
Bible study is accessible to everyone, is encouraged and is not difficult to read or understand in most cases.
Bible study is like medicine , good for the soul. However , every medicine comes with a caution on the label.
Good to know what the caution is.
Keep in mind, the Bible is not the whole Christ. Christ is the Word of God speaking to us through the Bible and the people of God(the Living Tradition, succession of the Apostles). We must always be in touch with the whole Christ when we read the Bible. There are other areas of caution that may be good to know.
If you read the bible on your own or in a bible group, maybe this little five minute message can help.
