God's Word

God's Word is our great heritage..................................

So what-- big deal --the bible has been around for a long time,, we have the freedom to take it
or leave it......we have burned it .......buried it..........ignored it......and changed it..................... some have taken it to heart and inwardly digested it......but one thing is for sure I would have no life without it. Just as there are those that can't understand why it's such a big deal-- I can't fathom not having it in my life. One of the greatest gifts my parents gave me was taking me to hear and learn the Word of God. Nothing else they could have left me would be of more value than knowing who God is and what He has done for me. I'm also very thankful to God that he has given me Pastors that are faithful to their call and preach and teach the pure Word and rightly administer the Sacraments. Who faithfully tend to God's sheep even when they could be doing something else. This is something that is becoming very rare today and it's more than a shame-- it's a travesty. Even when we have trouble understanding everything that is done liturgically or doing things differently than what one is comfortable with -- as long as God's Word is taught in it's Truth and Purity --the rest will come together,, God will see to that. That's the key -- it doesn't matter if we stand or sit ,,, make the sign of the cross or not ,, have blue paint instead of's what are we doing with God's Word??? We are never to compromise on the Word and how it is taught,, not as a Pastor in the pulpit --- not as the layperson in the pew.

............Lord grant while worlds endure we keep its teachings pure
Throughout all generations.

Have you ever been at a crossroad in your life when you're not sure which path to take next??

It could be about your job -- do I stay in the one I have or find a new one??
Do I continue my education or go out into the "real world"??
Do I stay in this relationship or go??
Is this the church I should be at or should I move on??
Am I really the person God wants me to be or do I need to do a major overhaul??
Am I really a Christian or just pretending to fool others and myself??
What makes me question everything I have learned about faith and religion??

What is it--- Where is it--- and Why don't I understand it???????????????

Things aren't always black and white ,, sometimes they're gray and that's what trips people up every time......

Why do bad things happen to good people and why do bad people have good things happening to them???

It was alot easier when we were young and thought we knew everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But now we're older and questioning everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
