"The Light Entrusted to You" Advent Small Groups
Small Groups offers a wonderful opportunity to connect with other parishioners while enriching our faith. Those involved in small groups consistently cite a greater feeling of community as well as better clarity in what it means to live out their faith on a daily basis.
In, “The Light Entrusted to You, Keeping the Flame of Faith Alive” author John Wood explains that the best way to learn something is to teach it. In six “lessons” throughout the book, he explores some fundamental truths of our Catholic faith and how we can best share these truths and become the light of Christ to our families, workplace, and communities. Each of the lesson’s titles makes up the acronym, SAINT, for that this the purpose of our baptism and journey of faith, that we can “one day go out to meet the Lord” in communion with all the saints. In John Wood’s words, “Become a Saint. Nothing else really matters.”
Throughout the 6-week meetings of small groups, we will discuss these truths of our faith and how we can best share these truths with those around us. This small group session will aim to fan the flame of faith and love of God in you, so that you might, in the words of St. Catherine of Sienna, “set the world ablaze.” God can do great things through those who trust in Him!
BOOKS COST $15.00 AND CAN BE PURCHASED FROM THE PARISH OFFICE OR CHURCH BOOK RACK.
