I'm a little late in sharing this but I thought I would share it anyway.
The cross is real to me because it was real to God. Real God touched our world in a powerful way on the cross and in his resurrection. His "touch" generated waves impacting my life uniquely and my subjective rational impression is "It's God." My emotional response is wonder with thanksgiving and I want others to know.
Psalm 118:27 - God is the LORD; he has shined upon us;
form a procession with branches up to the horns of the altar.
I John 4:19 - We love him, because he first loved us.
I've decided to move to Atlanta. I will stay with my sister in the Decatur area while I look for a job in the legal field as a paralegal or attorney. My parents live on the other side of Atlanta. Linda and Joseph will come later - after schools over and after I get settled in.
For those I may not have the opportunity to say goodbye to in person - Goodbye. I'll visit from time to time so if I don't get to say goodbye now, I'll just say hello later. I met many wonderful believers through Cursillo. I particularly enjoyed the Men's bible study on Friday mornings and everyone there. Leading morning prayer was a meaningful faith sharing experience and I thank Alston for that opportunity.
My first order of business when I get there is to find a church. I plan on visiting the Holy Trinity Parish once I get to Decatur but I'm not too sure. If anyone has any impressions of churches around Decatur, let me know. God Bless.
