Good Morning! I’m going to say this each and every chapter we discuss…I really like this book Called to Life! I made a vlog for this week’s book club discussion of chapters one and two. A couple of notes before we get started…
1. I ran out of daylight and did not get a picture taken of the giveaway gift. So, next week when discuss chapter 3, I will have a picture ready and details on how to enter.
2. I am trying to set up a facebook community page for Suscipio…trying being the operative word. For some reason facebook and I are not hitting it off. I do not have a facebook account, nor do I want a facebook account (ever), but I realize that many people enjoy the community facebook provides. So I thought I’d skip on over there and set up an account for this website; easier said than done.
3. As mentioned in #1, we will be discussing chapter 3 next Wednesday.
4. Thank you all so much! Suscipio is barely two weeks old and the community is already growing! Suscipio is here because of you and for you, so thank you. And keep spreading the word!
Here are the discussion questions and notes/quotes I posed in the vlog:
(pgs 11 & 12) How does pride keep us from responding to God’s smaller, everyday calls?
(pg 15) St Therese…”Nothing except for today”
Do my actions, does my attitude, show that I believe my humble life to be a call from God? As much a call as when He called Abraham to lead the Israelites or Mary to be the Mother of God?
(pg 21) “Even with its trials and sufferings, life is still a gift.”
(pg 27) What does the author mean…”Life is beautiful and full of meaning in its absurdity if you know how to take it as a whole.”
Do I accept the grace present in the trials, the mundane calls, the absurdity of life? Or do I reject these calls? Could a continual refusal of these calls from God place my soul in jeopardy?
So let’s start discussing ladies! Also, feel free to add any quotes or pose any questions that stood out to you as you read chapters 1 & 2.
