Wow! I survived…
Wrap it up was a success at Fairfield Commons Mall hundreds of people came to wrap presents, talk to people and to share their faith in a practical way.
One lady came in and wanted to talk to me… the boss… as we talked she mentioned that she was raised a Catholic and wanted to reconnect to her faith. She went to her priest and asked how she could become reconnected. He mentioned he’d check with her 5th grade teacher and find out how she had been living the Christian life. In other words, no chance.
I too have Catholic roots having been in boarding school for 3 years. I was able to share some of my journey toward faith and was able to explain that Jesus is our High Priest and that we can go directly through Him to reach out to God the Father, and that He has secured eternal salvation for those who chose to believe by faith through His grace. (see Hebrews 8 – 10)
It was a great talk… the purpose of Wrap it up? to create God space where people can be impacted by His generosity in a practical way.
