I fly on jets, but still don’t know how they are able to fly with being so large and carrying so many people. I drove by an aircraft carrier the other day while on vacation and can’t believe that something that big could float. I walk down the streets of some of the world’s biggest cities amazed at how a skyscraper could reach so high. Standing at the rim of the Grand Canyon and I am in awe that water could have carved that wide and deep of a crevasse in the earth. Our world is filled with signs and wonders – our ministry should be filled with even more signs and wonders.
In our ministry, are we relying on our own competencies or do we rely on the signs and wonders of God? When is the last time you were awed by what God was doing with the teens at your parish?
