What are you learning these days? In what ways are you growing? How is your life and faith improving or going deeper these days?
With children back in school they are suddenly immersed in learning- reading,
discovering, having new worlds opened up to them, writing, etc.
As an adult, what are you immersing yourself in to help you grow?
Personally, I find myself growing every day as I talk with my parishioners and others in the community. In asking questions and in conversation I learn more about faith and life.
In addition, I try to spend time reading throughout the week. Reading scripture, a novel, and magazines keeps me fresh and growing. Online blogs and news web sites help keep me current on the events of our day.
Learning something new can be delightful and disturbing. I say “disturbing” because learning something new can disrupt or change our life.
My hope and prayer for you this day is that God will disturb you and stretch
you through the power of his Word. May our Lord open new worlds to you and new ways of seeing in this incredibly complex and fascinating world.
Joy in the Journey!
