Sunday to Monday / Peace that Forgives

On Sunday, Jim Dietvorst was our guest preacher and shared a beautiful message about love, forgiveness and how changing your words can change your life.   

 

 Falling In Love With God

 Nothing is more practical than finding God,
that is, than falling in love
in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination,
will affect everything.
It will decide what will get you
out of bed in the morning,
what you will do with your evenings,
how you will spend your weekends
what you read, who you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you
with joy and gratitude.
Fall in love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.

 ~ Pedro Arrupe, SJ

Here's some thoughts for this week:

  • When you read Genesis 45:4-15 in you r mind, are you Joseph or one of his brothers?
  • Are you willing to let go of stereotypes and make a decision to love others regardless of who or what they are?
  • Can you think of some words you may stop using, or some words you may start using?
  • Can you accept there is nothing you can do to make GOD love you any less and in so doing let go of the fears that prevent you from truly, deeply, loving others?
