Scenes from my first Christmas

Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

Encourage each other daily while it is still today!

Mike and I are finishing up week two of our moral theology course, with a guest teacher. It was a mixed bag of blessings and difficulties. The blessings were the teacher's marvelous sense of humor and how he brought that into our discussions on moral theology.

Unfortunately, there were shades of Plymouth (A Baroque Church) that made this a challenging and frustrating evening. In our final year of Plymouth I shared how we were all a little, actually heavily frustrated with this tele-conferencing. Well Wednesday night we were treated to looking at a blank screen and trying to pay close attention to the teachers voice. One of our students in Littleton asked if they could change the camera angle in the final hour so that we could actually see the teacher. Needless to say the final hour was very good.

Mike and I have a one hour commute back home and sometimes we stumble upon something that sets our hearts on fire. We got into a discussion on some of our parishioners and then he did it.....Mike said " next time you see her, please encourage her! She is a wonderful person who could really benefit from some kind words!" Well it didn't take me long to think about what I read almost every morning in the Invitatory....

"Encourage each other daily while it is still today!"
Almost everywhere you go you can hear a message of urgency, buy now, limited time offer, hurry now! How often do we use this sense of urgency to build up the body of Christ?
I try quite often to build up people, but as I told Mike " I can do better!"
So with this sense of urgency in mind, take that extra moment to encourage someone today, while you still can!
Bonjour et Adieu mes Amis,
