I Understand Why You Don’t Go To Church

I get it.  You have reasons for not going to church.  

If you aren’t going to church today, perhaps even more so if you are, there is something you need to know. Going to church isn’t about going to church.  Once you understand that, and if you ask from your heart for the grace to know what it is actually about, and you receive the gift of knowing; it is a game changer.

“The Heart of Christ must be recognized as the heart of the Church: It is He who calls us to conversion, to reconciliation. It is He who leads pure hearts and those hungering for justice along the way of the Beatitudes. It is He who achieves the warm communion of the members of the one Body. It is He who enables us to adhere to the Good News and to accept the promise of eternal life. It is He who sends us out on mission. The heart-to-heart with Jesus broadens the human heart on a global scale.” – Saint Pope John Paul II 

Faith is a gift.  Open your heart to that gift. It isn’t about going to church, it is about family coming together in love, to spend time with the one who loves us best, and with each other.  In this way we remember, we celebrate, and we believe.  In this way we find joy and strength to carry us through the storms of this life.  In this way we stay connected to those who have gone before us in life to their eternal home.  In this way we are given a space and time which removes many of the distractions that surround us so that we may have a heart-to-heart with Jesus.

Change your game.  Change your life.  Together, we can change the world.
