Where are you following Jesus this Sunday? We hear again about taking up
our cross and following Christ. The world is not advertising this path of sacrifice in love or even walking with a 'poor' carpenter from a 'small'unknown town-keeping company with the 'commoners' and 'sinners.' No, that campaign would not be the
polished image of advertising. Yet, Christ speaks clearly to Peter even calling him darkness. His firmness is in order to SAVE. Their time together is passing. He is straight forward and without delay. Take up your cross and follow
me. How is Sunday drawing us into the message of truth? Are we encouraging others in the light of our hope? A call or note to a person facing trial may be the catalyst to a closer intimacy with the living God. Are we growing as forgiving
and caring people? Do strangers encounter our joy of the new creation he has effected in our days? As universities open this week let us pray campuses become fields of new life in the Gospel hope! Pray that our lives, in Reclaiming Sunday,
may be a reflection of the peace the world cannot give, yet can live the virtues of faith, hope and love. Will you invite one person to live Sunday in a new way? Prayers for all visitors to reclaim sunday.net.
