Finding God in All Things

Finding God in All Things

A New Series Starting August 23rd

In the early 16th century Ignatius of Loyola – a Spanish soldier and aristocrat – heard a calling to full-time ministry after suffering a nearly fatal wound in the Battle of Pamplona. Inspired by a vision of Mary and the baby Jesus on Montserrat and stories of St. Francis of Assisi and others who had undergone radical personal transformations, Ignatius would eventually leave his life in the military to create the Society of Jesus, an order known today throughout the world as simply “the Jesuits.”

Central to Jesuit spirituality is Ignatius’ instruction to go out and “find God in all things.” The Jesuits emphasize a belief in a God who is ever active and at work in the world around us. Sometimes in obvious ways, but more often in subtle, discreet ways. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the famed Jesuit paleontologist of the last century, captures Ignatius’ teaching when he writes that “God is not remote from us. He is at the point of my pen, my pick, my paintbrush, my needle – and my heart and my thoughts.”

On Sunday mornings this fall WE will be exploring Ignatius’ exhortation as together we seek to “Find God in All Things,” including some places where we might never dream God exists! Our topics will include…

Come join us as we seek to have our eyes open to the many ways that God is at work in our midst each and every day. As always…ALL are welcome!
