They had a lot of stories about angels and they told us all the stories, Adam and Eve, Noah 's Ark and much more. They also taught me to accept other people 's religious beliefs. The Catholic faith made me into the person I am today as it guides me in determining what is right and wrong as well as it helps me build meaningful relationships. It also allows me to deal with others in a fair and equal manner whether it is in work, school, and home or on the streets.
We visited three different schools and spent much of our time at my parishes sister parish in Benqué, Belize. The mission trip was far from anyone's normal vacation to Belize, mainly because it was not meant to be a vacation but a vocation. While there we went to mass everyday and taught children every day except for two. We put together lessons to teach the children but I think they ended up teaching us more than we taught them. Their innocence and their gratefulness was astonishing, they were happier than any American children that I have ever met and they had just enough to survive.
Sunday Mass This observation has been carried out this Sunday in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. It took about one and a half hours with different social groups and their interactions have been observed. Since it is a Catholic Church, you can notice that most of the people were white and the upper middle and wealthy classes of American households. The interaction there were mainly by the chorus members and the piano player.

Angelou states, “…he used the occasion to speak to backsliders, gamblers, and general ne’er-do-wells.” (Angelou, 2014, p.181). The minister’s sermon, not only encouraged Angelou’s graduating class but also became a time to motivate the backsliders in the church who had lost their way. Angelou describes that on the cheerful morning of her graduation her
My whole childhood, religion has been a large part of my family. Every Sunday we went to church and also participated in many church organizations. It was only when I was older that I realized the whole world was not in fact Catholic. While catholicism may not be the dominant subgroup in society, it was what I considered the norm in my early life. Even as I grew and began to learn about different religions, catholicism has still remained a central part of my life.
That one decision changed my life forever. I grew up in a mostly Christian atmosphere. I did the usual church on Sundays and Wednesdays, although I did not really know what it meant to live a Christian life. My Mom definitely was a believer but we went through lots of hard times.
I happened to grow up in a small town in New York and there were kind Christian people that reached out to me and showed genuine care. As time went on I deepened my understanding of Christianity by attending a small Christian, Liberal Arts college in Western New York. After college, I continued my pursuit of Christianity. My husband even became a pastor at multiple local churches. When I started teaching at an early college with a diverse population, my faith and belief in a higher power began to stretch.
and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework. I also need to have specific time to shower and get ready for school in the morning.
Throughout the duration of this class, I have been highly reflective on my work, but have failed to take into consideration past mistakes when developing new assignments. From the Personal Narrative Essay to the Destination Essay, common errors have take place amongst them all. Specifically, I have struggled to make the syntax of my essays less confusing and allow my explanations to be more detailed, but have always been successful in sharing interesting ideas with the audience. The first way that I have struggled to become more flexible and self-aware is by the lack of using correct syntax. Within almost every essay written during first semester, I came across multiple comments made by you that reflect my difficulty creating sentences
To hear His voice and a hunger to learn and study the Bible. This led her to six years of Bible study, which she found, “very precious” especially when she prayed with other people. The Word would come to her mind and through discernment when she spoke out God’s Word, it healed and changed people’s lives. To attend Church each morning and live in a Community of like-minded people, living as in the Acts of Apostles. Living in the fullness of God’s Grace.
Lebanon United Methodist Church Located in the small, rural town of Neeses, South Carolina, is the quaint little building known as Lebanon United by the members of the church. Consisting mostly of elderly couples, much like my personal church, this church was not too farfetched for me to enjoy. A lot of families fill up the pews on Sunday mornings’; one of those families being my son’s girlfriends. At least I know that my future in-laws are church going! I can personally say that I had never been to any church service other than my own and when my son invited me to join him and the family for service one Sunday, I was of course hesitant.
One day some of these students will get the opportunity to meet Christ and they will reflect on their music class in elementary school and realize Mr. Vercillino taught them the Bible before they even knew it. Now that is ministry, being a light and an example to God’s precious
God and church activities have been a part of my weekly routine for as long as I can remember. If it is nine o’clock on a Sunday morning, I will definitely be in a church pew at Highland Baptist Church. My parents make sure that I understand the importance of going to church and trying to exemplify the spirit of Christ daily. I have been given the amazing opportunity to be raised on Godly morals in a strong Christian household. Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought.
