We'll be meeting about every other Monday evening from 7-9 from Feb 8th until May 24th. We're currently recruiting people for the group. We've placed ads in the bulletin and made announcements at a few of the Masses this weekend. We'll do the same thing next weekend.
The study is really interesting. It makes you dig deeper into yourself, make new friends, and really get more in touch with your spirituality. I'm really excited about doing this, but I've been wondering lately what I have to give to this new group of women. Then today's second reading about the gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Each persons' gift is different, but still given by the same God. Then the Gospel about doing whatever He tells you to do.
On top of that, yesterday I picked up a 2010 calendar on the "spur of the moment" (I've been missing having one near the desk). Inside is the following saying:
You're not here by chance,
but by God's choosing.
His hand formed you
and made you the person you are.
He compares you to no one else-
you are one of a kind.
You lack nothing that
His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here
at this time in history
to fulfill His special purpose
for this generation.
All this and an out-of-the-blue email from a list I unsubscribed from over a year ago has convinced me that I am supposed to be doing this group (and a few other things). I've also realized that while I'm getting better at reading His signs (I think), I still need to work on listening for His voice.
