The Same Spirit; The Same God

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus,

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.”

God has a unique place for each of us in His plan for the universe; our gifts are as diverse as we are. What I find so inspiring is the harmony with which these gifts cooperate for the upbuilding of the Church. We need parents doing what parents do with the love of the Holy Spirit. We need volunteer workers who contribute their hard work and creativity to works of service in our community. We need leaders and leadership groups that lead with the Counsel of the Holy Spirit. We need every part of the Body of Christ in order for the Body to function in good order.

We need you! Your gifts are integral to the life of our parishes, and we are not what we ought to be until your gifts are put to use! Please prayerfully consider how God is calling you to contribute your time and talents. If you have not yet found a ministry or activity that corresponds to your God-given talents, this may be an opportunity to start something new! God made us to be creative—to constantly increase the reach of the Church by exploring new avenues to bring Christ to His people and His people to Christ.

May the Holy Spirit continue to enliven and inspire us, and may the Body of Christ, the Church, continue to grow and bear fruit in the name of Jesus Christ, our Head.

Peace in Christ,

Father Matthew Kuhn
