Remember when you were a little kid and you went to the store with your mom to buy your new school supplies for the year?
As I flipped through the newspaper last weekend, it seemed that on every page there was an ad for a school supply sale. I guess it’s that time of year. I couldn’t help but think back. I remember how much I loved opening a brand new box of pristine crayons . . . and that smell as I flipped through a perfectly clean notebook.
I spent some time reflecting, trying to put my finger on exactly what that feeling is. We don’t get it quite so often as adults, but it’s there from time to time. Starting a new job. First day in a new house. Those kinds of times.
Finally I had it. It’s the feeling of possibility.
It’s that feeling that something new is about to begin. That the world is open before you. There are a thousand different paths for you to take, each one filled with excitement and opportunity.
I had this feeling recently as I walked through our warehouse at Dynamic Catholic. I wish all of you could stop by our office and see it. Stacks upon stacks of books, CDs, workbooks, Bibles, and so many other resources to help inspire people like you. I like to slowly walk up and down the aisles of our warehouse and let my eyes fall over the shelves.
I pray for all the men, women, and children who will receive these resources. And I pray in gratitude for possibility. Every workbook, every Bible study, every CD represents the possibility of a heart moved, a life changed, a parish energized. Each and every book is not a book—it’s a possibility.
This is one of our busiest times of year. The warehouse is fulfilling thousands of orders to help parishes as they gear up to begin Confirmation classes, First Reconciliation and First Communion classes, Bible studies, parish book programs, and more. If you placed one of those tens of thousands of orders, I want you to know that I’m thinking about you and praying for you.
Please let us know if there is ever a way Dynamic Catholic can serve you or your parish better.
May God bless you and all those you love.
