All that we have comes from God. When it comes to material things, it’s easy to see what those gifts are. But God gifts us in other ways, too. If you are not sure what your gifts are, use these three documents to discern them. Give God the glory by using them in your home, community, Church and for the human family. God is counting on us to be His Missionary Disciples. It is not necessary to travel to some foreign country as The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal do. It can be as close to home as being like Jesus to someone who is having a hard time. Can Christ count on us?
Now that you know your gifts, you may discover you have been using them for quite some time. Is it time to reflect to see if you are leading a balanced life? Or, have you been so giving that you are on the verge of burning out? Take this Spiritual_Pulse_Self_Assessment, based on the book, The Power of Pause: Becoming More by Doing Less by Terry Hershey. If your results show you don’t need to step back, please use your gifts in any of the following ministries:
- Liturgical Ministries
- Catechetical Ministries
- Social Ministries
- Office Help
- Site Specific Ministries and Services that need your help
