We are launching our newest devotional y'all! The second installment of the Love Letters of St. Paul is available for purchase, and we want to make sure that you are all ready to join us as we at The Light Project begin our reflections with them this Advent Season.
For the next few weeks we'll be focusing here in the "Devotional Content" section of the blog on the beginning pages of Pursuing Peace Through the Love Letters of St. Paul Part Two. There is a lot of information packed into these pages, and we want to make sure that we have the opportunity to get all that we (and you!) can out of this powerhouse of a book.
Through the pages of the devotional we take a deep dive each week into one scripture verse, so we have time to sit with it, reflect on it, try it on, and practice whatever action the Holy Spirit call us to that week. Each new verse begins on Sunday (usually beginning in the evening, but do what works for you!) With that in mind, this blog will come out each Sunday evening at 5:00pm for the next 5 weeks. Giving us 6 full weeks to prepare for the Advent Season!
So, let's start with the purpose of Pursuing Peace. First and foremost, Pursuing Peace is designed to get us to dive deeper into scripture because daily practice helps us create what Matthew Kelly calls Holy Moments. Spending time in scripture daily allows us to:
Recognize how the seemingly small, unseen actions we do everyday can be an opportunity to make a big difference in the world around us.
Slow down and find deeper meaning in our lives.
Discover our unique light and how we can use it to serve others and glorify God.
Identify the small actions that help us obtain inner peace.
Live intentionally in the divine moments that we may otherwise miss.
Each day, each moment, each breath is a gift. In the present is where we find the presence of God. (p. 8)
These daily reflections are designed to help us both stay present in the present and discover our individual identity. Our identity does not come from what we do, it comes from a relationship with our Creator. (p. 9) Spending a few simple minutes each day in the company of Our Lord is where that relationship can begin.
Wishing you Love and Light!
