  1. Thirty years ago now I experienced a profound realization that the Holy Spirit was actively at work in my life, guiding and leading me to continue to reshape every aspect of my life and love.

    Help us all to become more mature in the world today with the gift of sensitivity and the willingness to grow in faith, hope and love.
    Amen +
