This past session of my CFM (Christian Foundations Ministries) class I was learning about the history of the Church. I thought to myself, ‘I wonder how many people know any of this? I sure didn’t before now’.
Learning about the history of your religion is something I recommend to everyone and if you think you know it, learn about it again. You will be surprised how much you don’t really know. We only covered a fraction of all there is to know, so I am even hoping to have the opportunity to learn more about the Catholic Church’s history.
It has given me hope. Our Church is far from perfect and we may not always get it right and that is when I put my hope in the power of change. Change can be scary but you know what? It can also be beautiful. I have learned about things that have changed through the centuries, some good and some not so good. You can look forward to future posts on some of those changes and what I hope for our future. The Catholic Church may just become even more beautiful than it is now!!!
If you have questions or comments about things you would like to see changed I would love to hear it. Never give up hope that change is possible.
