My parish priest gave a sermon three years ago in which he told us to do something for the community - it didn't have to be earth-shattering. When I answered that call, I had no idea that volunteering once a week for three hours would prove to be the single most vital boost to my spiritual life besides the Mass.
The ladies I work with are fun-loving, intelligent and normal, with one important additional quality. They are committed Christians.
So much of my growth in faith is a direct result of spending time with this fantastic group. I'm learning to rethink my outlook on life and understand better what it means to be a Christian.
Thank you for the fun, the weekly inspiration and introduction to such wonderful Christian books!
