Possibility of Change


For many of us we were born Catholic and spent our lives going to church willingly or being dragged by our parents. We go through the motions of what is expected at church and don’t necessarily understand what we are doing. Some of us just go to church but barely participate.

Do you understand why we do what we do at church and what things mean or represent?? Unfortunately I am sure many don’t. I have only begun to cut the surface of my questions.

Through the years when people haven’t agreed with how things have been done in the church they demanded change. If they didn’t get the change they wanted, they turned their backs, walked away and started a new church.

I won’t go into all the history but if you are interested I highly suggest you research how different religions were founded and by who. The one thing that is for sure is Jesus told Peter that he is the rock and upon the rock I will build my church. He choose 12 Apostles to teach and lead the way. He wanted one church and when we find ourselves not agreeing with the way things are done we need to pray for change not walk away.
