It has been a little over 3 months since my last blog entry, which was just a few days before serving for the 16th Single’s Encounter Weekend. I had been an active member in the BLD community for a little over a year, but I must admit, I was tired after that weekend of service. I saw that weekend as an opportunity to give back to the community and to God all the graces that I had received, so I tried ever so eagerly to persist in that goal. What grew in me during our preparations for that weekend was a passion to serve and seek God, but also … I realized that through the pursuit of my goal, no effort can match the graces or gifts that you received from Him.
What had happened after that weekend was the building of many questions about my journey towards truth, my approach towards my faith, religion, and the Gospel, and my relationship with Christ. … I stepped back a little to gain a new perspective, took some quiet time for myself, and began to explore other possibilities of building my relationship with God.
