Who will believe what has not been shared?

"I hear of your love and of the faith which you have in the Lord Jesus and in all the saints, and I pray that the sharing of your faith may promote the knowledge of all the good that is ours in Christ. For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love because the hearts of God’s people have been refreshed by you." (Philemon 1:4-7)
Each of us is called to share the Good News we have heard and believed. Each of us can tell others of the ways that we have experienced God in our lives. Each of us needs to listen with respect to each other’s story of faith. Each of us can speak of these faith stories to each other as family and as a large Christian community. Each of us must share our faith, our hope, and our love with those who have not heard about or do not experience these gifts of God.
Each of us is called to share our faith. We can no longer leave this work to the ordained, vowed, religious, and church professionals. The mission of the laity in the workplace, the home, in social settings, and in the political arena is to proclaim and share the Good News. Take some time to reflect on the four elements of the evangelization cycle by looking at your own life experience in relation to the scriptures. Discover your own response to the call to evangelize.
Share your story of God's love with others.

Peace and Love,
"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
