When I first started planning a food tour business six years ago, I began meeting with city tourism officials, & attending local & state tourism promotion functions; I was immediately struck by how genuinely helpful, generous, and welcoming EVERYONE in the industry seemed to be treating me…
As Jesus entered the holy city of Jerusalem, the crowds chanted, “Hosanna in the highest, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” The word Hosanna means “Help! Save! Rescue!” The people were calling out for Jesus to rescue them. We have discussed our need for rescue.
Sometimes we just get in a rut. Whether it’s what life deals us or a detour from our initial plan, we just feel disconnected from God and anything significant in our life. In our spiritual malaise, we forget what’s possible. We get so caught up in coping that we don’t remember what it’s like to be free and joyful.
We are no doubt on an adventure here at Sacred Heart. Our quest to encounter Jesus and become Missionary Disciples has the power to direct our lives in ways that we may not fully realize. The unknowing of the journey can definitely be a bit frightening at times. The joy of the journey is that we aren’t alone on the adventure.
Without our being aware, our relationship to religion may be a performance-based model. I’m judged on what I do and how well I do it. Somehow there is a Someone in heaven keeping a tally of all my good deeds. The hope in this regard can be that my good deeds outweigh my bad deeds and somehow I slip into heaven’s gates. If we reflect on this model further, we can see that all the focus seems to be on us.
