As summer continues, so does CtK’s theme of beCOURAGEous. Last Sunday’s gospel of Luke 10:1-11 reminds us of the courage sometimes required when we give witness to our life of faith. In fact, during last week’s sermon, I issued a challenge for each of us. The challenge is to verbally share - to use our words to give witness to the good news. Before you think, “I can’t do that” or “what would I say,” remember that no one is better equipped than you to share your own experiences of God.
Two questions were posed last Sunday to get us thinking about how we can be witnesses of the good news. I invite you to continue to ponder, pray, and wonder how your responses to these questions can bolster your courage to share your faith with someone in the coming weeks.
St. Teresa of Avila, a 16th century mystic writes:
Christ has no body on earth but yours; no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ looks out to the world.
Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless others now.
Go forth, dear CtK, and beCOURAGEous!
