MAKE IT RIGHT
BUILDING A LIFE OF DISCIPLESHIP
The first ever MESSAGE SERIES at St. George Parish is a chance to build a life of discipleship based on the 6 Qualities of a Faithful Disciple we have been reflecting on over the last four years. This 6 week series explores each of the qualities making practical connections within the parish in our daily lives.
THE LIES THAT KEEP YOU UP AT NIGHT
Everyone experiences fears. Fears often hold us back from what we desire to achieve or the people we want to become. But what is behind our fears? Very often our fears are based on lies or half-truths we have come to believe. Overcoming fear requires getting to the root of those lies and finding out the truth about God and ourselves. In this series, we look at some common fears and how to overcome them.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FORGIVENESS
As we begin the new year, we seek to make some New Year’s resolutions to change our lives. We may be starting new habits, trying to get into shape or letting go of the past. In order for us to move forward, we need to look back and let go of the baggage that weighs us down. What do we need to let go of and who do we need to forgive? Forgiveness is the most powerful way to encounter peace, light and freedom!!
LONELINESS IN OUR WORLD TODAY
While we have more means of communication and more ways to connect to the rest of the world in human history, polls and research shows that many in our culture struggle with loneliness. We feel alienated from each other, alienated from ourselves and alienated from our God. While loneliness looks different in our modern times — it continues to grow. What can help us with our loneliness? The gift of our faith and have the RIGHT KIND OF HEART by placing JESUS AT THE CENTRE of our lives beckons us to community, love and brings us into the presence of the Almighty. Our faith changes everything and calls us to each other!!
While we come to church each week and pray, sometimes our actions don’t follow our beliefs and go through the motions of faith. We can drift so much that sometimes we act as if God doesn’t exist. How can we reconnect, remember and rekindle our faith and relationship with the Lord? This message series will give us concrete ways to reconnect and remember our severed or drifted relationship with Christ. The season of Lent is a time for us to turn back to Jesus who constantly reaches out to us. Let us turn back and be filled with his grace, light and peace.
HE IS RISEN
SEEING JESUS TODAY
This Easter season is the greatest and most powerful season of the Church’s year. It is a chance to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus—his triumph over sin and death–our hope of eternal life fulfilled.
This series begins during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lives are completely changed and we are in crisis. We have not been able to go to church or receive the sacraments. It is right now that we really need to see Jesus in our world today and deepen our faith. It is right at this time that we need to see the eternal light so that we can experience here and now the power of the resurrection. This series will help us have faith and see the saving power of God in our lives. We really don’t have to look too far!!
