Examples—LSU baskets, hunting or fishing items, Louisiana recipes, pictures depicting Louisiana, etc. We may also need some items to complete baskets with samples that we receive from vendors. If you are interested in donating to Silent Auction, please contact Sylvia Hebert 446-5253. Thanks for any help you can give.

The point Jesus makes in the gospel is that he does not want our hearts and minds to be taken up with constant conflict, or to be in a state of argument with each other. Instead of controversy, Jesus says,” Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you …Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” In marriage and in every important relationship, there is plenty that we can be upset about, if we want to make that our priority- and many people do, which leads to alienation, anger, even divorce. In every church community, we can argue about abortion, or divorce, or women priests until the cows come home. These are vitally important topics about which to share our hearts. But Jesus is saying that our primary committed relationship is to God. Through Him our loyalty to bringing the peace of Christ to the world should be our focus. Jesus told us,” Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our dwelling with them.” Think about it. If the Trinity is dwelling with you, you can be sure you will not be preoccupied with negativity and arguments. You will be alive with new ways to bring that peace of God’s love to the needy and exhausted world. Listening in prayer is vitally important. But also listening to others’ stories and needs are what gives us a much larger vision of the world, and God’s activity within the world. Go in peace to love and serve our God. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
