In an effort to consolidate my blogs and because of its timeliness as I prepare to go on my third mission trip to Jamaica, I thought I would re-post a note I wrote before my second trip two years ago: Two years ago I went to Jamaica on this same mission project with Son Servants
“Joy is essential to the spiritual life. Whatever we may think or say about God, when we are not joyful, our thoughts and words cannot bear fruit. Jesus reveals to us God’s love so that His joy may become ours and that our joy may become complete. Joy is the experience of knowing you are unconditionally
