Reconciliation

I just wanted to comment on the discussion questions for this week. Let’s just say that I have broken almost every one of them. Most of them daily/hourly/minute by minute. I have had moments where I stepped out of the confessional and my mind was already going places it shouldn’t. I have wanted to turn around and sit back down in the confessional. Lust is probably the toughest for most of us guys. Not so easy when temptation is around every corner, on every tv screen and is in almost every book/magazine/web page you view. I have prayed on this often. Prayer works wonders. I am convinced that God has a sense of humor but he is definitely helping me.

Gospel Reading

I just wanted to comment on the Gospel reading today. I loved how well the first reading and Gospel worked together. The story of the man who wanted to be healed from leprosy. What really struck me was that Jesus was first moved with pity then he reached out his hand and healed him. I love this because we get to see the fully human side of Jesus as well as the fully divine side. Pretty awesome stuff.

Book Review: Searching for and Maintaining Peace by Jacques Philippe

Dan, this website is really awesome. Thanks for creating it. If you guys like to read, check out Searching for and Maintaining Peace by Jacques Philippe. We are currently reading it in our Team 9 small group. It is a small book and reads like a devotional but it is pack full of good material. For example, I just got through reading two chapters that talk about putting on our spiritual armor and dealing with our everyday battles. It describes our fight against evil like a battleground that we must continue all the way until the very end. I know we have all heard that message before but this books describes it beautifully. It is a very easy read and I highly recommend it. I found it interesting that one of the daily readings this week was on the exact same subject using the same scripture. Anyway, I just wanted to share. I think I will start using this blog a lot, if that’s okay. I dig it man.
