He is a liar, and the father thereof

If you think lying to save lives is morally licit, ask yourself how many of the lies you tell each month are told to save lives.

A letter from the pastor

I am asking you to read Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell with the goal of growing the vision of our parish and making Saint Andrew Apostle come alive with the heart of evangelization. We have a rich tradition to build on in this parish, thanks to the dedicated laity and religious and priests who have served here. Now, in this Year of Faith, it is time for us to begin to use the grace of our baptismal calling to reach out to others along with the rest of the Church. Then, I'm asking you to come to a meeting with other leaders of our community on June 5th at 7:00 pm in the rectory basement, using the book as a launching point for discussion. It will be about a 2-hour meeting. ...
Well, hell.

Delighted to hear the parish is going to reach out to others. Capital idea to order 70 copies of Forming Intentional Disciples as a launching point.

But how come I have to get involved? If the pastor wants 70 leaders of our community over at his place, why can't I play Eldad and stay home?

I blame Sherry Weddell. She's always doing things like this to me.
