Together in Faith: Jesus called the crowd and his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves. Mark 8:34
Denying ourselves is usually NOT the easiest way to go. On the contrary, we are frequently encouraged to consume, to help the economy, to satisfy our needs and our wants (easy to confuse those two!). Jesus, obviously, suggests a different way. What do we think about his suggestion? How might we implement it in our lives?
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Anali Perry.
