Ordinary 30 – Arlie Hochschild, Strangers in Their Own Land talks about the Deep Story. Is your Deep Story one individualism and self-preservation? Being a Christian means we are part of Creation: inherently connected, known, and valuable.
Ordinary 29 – We like the idea of leaders serving others… until its our turn. How would life be different if you put others first? It would look like a baseball team helping each other win. If you want to be a servant, you have to do these two things.
Ordinary 28 – You can’t do something to inherit eternal life because Jesus himself is Eternal Life. He loves you, and he desires you to be his friend. The journey may cost you everything, but it’s worth 100 times more. ”I love you. Come, follow me.”
Ordinary 27 – Our marriages would succeed if we would only live 1 Corinthians 13. Let God live in you and love in you. Action items: Daily Devotions, Sunday Worship, Faithful Obedience to God. Pray the Rosary. The Battle of Lepanto, thats why.
