The God Whisperers. According to Prs. Cwirla and Donofrio, Pres. Harrison will soon receive a confirmation email from them regarding the degree and he promises to give it the due attention it deserves. :)
Seriously, this is a fascinating interview with our President, which you can listen to here. Much to chew on, but especially munch-worthy are President Harrison's words regarding the local congregation's role in her surrounding community. This is an area I struggle with greatly, and I'm guessing that I'm not alone. I readily admit that neither I nor the parish I serve have been as active in our community as we should. We have ventured out there at times, but not with any regularity and consistency. It's challenging. We are a small parish, which makes it difficult to mobilize the troops. We live in a small community, where not a lot happens and where most of the needs we might lend a hand in addressing already have more hands involved than necessary. But, challenges aside, I know there are opportunities out there for us to share Christ through acts of mercy in our community, and we need to get serious about identifying them.
As I said, much to chew on . . .
