The Incarnation of Jesus: God with skin on

A little boy was having trouble sleeping and his parent came into his room and said, “You know that God is always with you, right?” To which he responded, “I know Mama, but I want a God with skin on.” Often when we see God working in our lives, it is through people that are cooperating with God’s grace.

A simple way to evangelize

I recently watched a webinar by one of my favorite business mentors, Patrick Lencioni. He consults for Fortune 500 companies like Boeing, Chick-fil-A and Southwest Airlines, and has authored more than a dozen bestselling business books over the past 25 years. Turns out, he’s Catholic! Ten years ago, he co-founded The Amazing Parish, a training and consulting ministry for Catholic parishes.

Evangelizing adults

As I have been traveling around our diocese offering the Encounter Love/Encounter Jesus experience, one sentiment continues to come up, “Other adults in our parish need to experience this retreat…” Adults are hungry to grow in their faith and long to experience the joy and presence of God in their daily lives.

Come to me and receive!

Jesus tells us, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Mathew 11:28). I recently had the good fortune of attending a four-day retreat at the Abbey of Gethsemani nestled on 2,200 acres in New Haven, Ky.
