One of the hallmarks of Southern Culture (especially in South Louisiana) is our sense of spontaneity. At a moments notice, we will change plans, rearrange our day, or even cancel meetings at the chance to get together with people. If we have friends that we haven’t seen in ages we will go all out to make sure that we have a great time, eat great food, and have plenty of time to catch up…
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.
