March 24 Encounter God’s Love: A family Affair
Join us as Chris Padgett helps us consider the ways we are called to Love: We are all unique. God wants to be in a relationship with us. Who is Jesus? He is calling us to be in love with Him. Forming our understanding of God so we can be more transformed to live a rich faith.
March 25 The Growing Family
Sharing God’s love: God wants to bless and love others. He wants to have us share this love to others. How we can practically share God’s love to those in our Jerusalem, Judea, the ends of the world (home, work, the world). Grow in Virtue and Victory over vice: Beg for the grace, will the good, in the moment. Empowerment by the Spirit to live our baptismal promises and love those in our reach.
