“When your Christian walk get’s hard, what do you do? Do you retreat? Do you stand still? Do you charge forward? We are being called to move forward even in difficult times because we believe that God is with us: even if we don’t know where God is leading us. Eucharist is a constant reminder that God is always with us and will always be with us. It is easy to say that we are followers of Jesus…easy to say that we will live like Jesus…but it is hard to actually follow him and take the next best step. If we live fully, we have to live under the mission of Jesus Christ. No matter how hard life gets…how confusing life gets…we say ever forward.” (Mark Hart)
This podcast is an excellent foundation for a weekly Bible study focused on the readings throughout the liturgical year. These Bible studies can be at the parish, at a coffee shop or even on-line.
