Seeking Deeper Understanding

08-21-2016ChristLifeJonathan Hosler

In September, our Parish will introduce 'Discovering Christ' as part of ChristLife; a seven-week opportunity to awaken your relationship with Christ. This past February, I responded to an invitation to come and learn about ChristLife and to consider becoming a small group facilitator.

Being asked meant that I needed to humbly, honestly, and prayerfully figure out (discern) if I could and should join up in furthering the mission of our Church and the mission of my own personal spiritual journey. Having said "Yes" to the opportunity, I have slowly but surely started to gain more insight into the story of the beautiful life God intends me to live. I do not write to say I have been wildly transformed, I honestly write to say I have offered what I can and have received the grace, understanding and patience from God allowing me to cooperate and keep saying "Yes" to His call.

Through ChristLife, I have experienced real growth in my understanding of our faith and believe there is real opportunity for our parish (and me) to continue growing closer to God and his Son
