After four or more days of cold, hard rain, occasional hail, and last night's fitful sleep in a too-cold room, Colorado Springs enjoyed a gorgeous spring day. Trees that had hardly begun to show signs of green seemed to have leafed out today. I have to admit, it is a drop-dead gorgeous place to call home (even if it's a "sometimes" home). As I was enjoying lunch out in the sunshine, I was reminded of a story told to me by Joan Carey, a parishioner at Christ King Catholic Church in Wauwatosa, WI. She has a website where you can listen to short parable podcasts taken from her own life experience. They're delightful, and might bring some sun to your day - whatever the weather's giving you. Here's what she says about them.
We know that most people don’t have time to attend a Bible study. Many find it challenging just to carve out a few minutes each day for prayer or to read the Bible on their own. So, for all of you “on the go,” we’ve packaged the truth of God’s Word for you to take with you as you go about your day.By the way, her venture in podcast story-telling was encouraged through her discernment of her gifts after attending a Called & Gifted workshop. Way to go, Joan!
The podcasts are short, modern-day parables that leave you pondering deeper truths of the faith.
