This week we went a different route and had an open discussion on current events and how they affect our faith life. We discussed topics like, Planned Parenthood, ISIS, the recent mass shootings and police in the media. We talked about all of these at length and had no trouble describing each one, the problem arose when we simply didn't know what to do about them. As Christians and Catholics, we are called to be servants of the Lord. We are called to be advocates against evil and acknowledge the one, true, King. So what do we do? Wednesday I told everyone my biggest pet peeve, ignorance. Ignorance is what leads to prejudice and violence and the idea of superiority, that's what I believe at least. Having this conversation as a group was so important to talk about the path society is headed right now and we were given the opportunity to share and learn together. At the end of the night we went around and asked how we can do our part to make a change, getting educated and sharing the knowledge is first, giving everyone you know a chance to learn something new. Go out into your community, serve those who need serving, talk with them and learn something new. Serve, share, and love, that's what we came up with.
My name is Carly Smith and I am on the leadership team for FIGHT club. I help with making sure people write meetings, and making sure everyone knows what we talk about. I will be writing most of these posts on meetings that we have, but every now and again there will be a guest blogger. Please tell us what you think. I hope you enjoy:)
