From a Saint Monica Sojourner January 1-2, 2022 Bulletin

Spiritual Tools to Help Grow Your Faith in 2022 – ALETEIA (Al-a-tay-ah)

If you added a four-legged, furry creature to your family during the holiday season, you know you’ve made significant changes in your daily routines. This new family member gets to eat breakfast before you do. You set your alarm clock to a time before the sun rises. Walking for a twenty-to-thirty-minute period is now your exercise of choice. You’re recycling the plastic produce bags you get from the market to take with you when you and your new friend go out for a walk. But will you also make changes in how you grow your faith in 2022 to become closer to Jesus Christ?

This is the first in a series from the Sojourner about internet sites you can connect to on your phone or laptop that provide you with spiritual tools to reenergize you on your journey with Jesus.
