This Week’s Stewardship of Time and Talent In gratitude for God’s gifts of time and talent to us, we gratefully acknowledge and salute: Those who helped with our January’s Senior Luncheon. Giving Summary Last Sunday’s Offering: Building Fund $10,487.00 $400.00 Message of the Week Mark 1:14-20 “Repent, and believe in the Gospel.” What would happen if Jesus spoke these commanding words today? Would his listeners accuse him of shoving his religion down their throats? Would they give him a lecture on tolerance or insist that repentance is an outdated idea from a bygone era obsessed with guilt? How many of us would actually listen to him, and do what he said? Our modern culture has been programmed to respond with skepticism, if not anger, to any suggestion that there is a “right” way of doing things or a “true” religion. But when Jesus tells us to repent, he implies that some of the choices we are making are wrong, that we need to change, to eliminate our sins, to turn toward God, and to become more loving, more generous, and more forgiving. And when he tells us to believe in the Gospel, he’s not just making a recommendation. He is giving us directions for entering “the Kingdom of God.” Are we willing to let his words affect us? Are we ready to examine our lives and repent of our sins? Are we prepared to believe the good news he preached of salvation and forgiveness? He wants us to share in the glory of his kingdom, now and for all eternity. The question is only how we will respond to this divine invitation. Questions of the Week Mark 1:14-20: What place does repentance have in your spiritual life? Jonah 3:1-5, 10: What is surprising to you in the conversion of the Ninevites? 1 Corinthians 7:29-31: What do you think Paul meant by the phrase “For the world in its present form is passing away?” St. Francis Central Catholic School Celebrating 100 years of Quality Catholic Education Catholic Schools Week January 25, 2015 to January 31, 2015 Sunday, January 25, 2015 Open House 12:00pm - 3:00pm (Faculty and staff will be on hand to greet guests, families and potential families, all are welcome) Spaghetti Dinner Sunday, January 25, 2015, 11:30am to 3:00pm St. Francis Central Catholic School Cafeteria Adults $10, Adults 65 and over and Children 12 and under, $5.
