Show up for God
Today, we share a blog written by Sr. Tram, our novice. She writes: “Every year, “Tết reminds me of the many blessings I have received from God. It’s also a time to remind me to be more aware of living in the present, the importance to be at peace, and learning again to recognized God all around me. It’s a time to call me back to the table, the church, the community, the family. In addition, Tết reminds me of the welcoming and unlimited invitation to the Lord’s Supper to each of us and especially for me. If Tết season is gone and as the days go by, I know for sure that I am always welcome at the Lord’s Table and I can always receive many blessings there. The only thing the Lord requests for me is to show up.” Click here to read Sr. Tram’s blog as she recalls how they celebrated Tết, explains the Lunar New Year, and shares how we are called to ‘show up’ for God.
