I saw this video posted on the Asian and Pacific Islander Catholic page recently and wanted to write a response.
I'm a campus minister who lives in the Midwest and loves connecting via technology.
Share your own thoughts - joy and hope in church today?
The hope I feel and express is often in the shared community I turn to each Sunday for my own renewal as a college campus minister. Each Sunday I gather in a diverse community of worshipers in Chicago's South Side to break bread and to listen to the Word of God but also how it moves my heart in new ways.
I found that my own spiritual journey is as integral to my ministry along with those whom I serve. They walk alongside me but in a different way. My own hope is renewed in prayer with my parish community, which is intentionally a place far away from my place of ministry each weekend.
