God Alive & Relevant in Hearts of the Greats!

God Alive & Relevant in Hearts of the Greats!

For centuries, the tentacled evil octapus seems focused on suffocating the life out of belief in God and all things Godly, declaring without evidence that God and especially the Catholic Church has become irrelevant. Many decades ago, poet W.B. Yeats inquired: "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

The truth is that the really good people, who encompass most of us on this planet, just happily go on believing.

I'll give you a stellar example of an experience I had just today (Friday, August 13, 2010) at The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Day in Saratoga Springs, New York, where the greatest trainers, jockeys and Thoroughbreds are honored each year.

2010 Hall of Fame Jockey Inductee Randy Romero said he was happy to get this honor on this side of the dirt and that the most important Person in his life is God.

Hall of Fame Jockey Pat Day said that every honor he has ever gotten has been through the grace of God.

2010 Hall of Fame Awards Keynote Speaker Gary Stevens said "God bless!" at the end of his keynote speech.

In my long lifetime, I have heard many greats over many centuries give the lion's share of credit to God. Never in my life did I ever hear any great give any credit to the Devil.

Why do you think that is? I would love to hear.

Christians Talking About Jesus with Barbara Garro

Christians tell me all the time that they crave conversation about their faith and they love the way I allow them to share their thoughts in my workshops.

Now, with my new book From Jesus to Heaven with Love: A Parable Pilgrimage, participants get to add a new workshop to the conversation with 33 of Jesus' parable stories in a 7-Step heuristic, self-discovery process. My first public workshop From Jesus to Heaven with Love: A Powerful Pilgrimage will be offered at Saratoga Springs Continuing Education at Saratoga Springs High School in September 2010. To register, reach Shirley at 518-583-4782. The cost is $7 for one evening two-hour class.

Imagine a workshop setting where participants can ask questions, speak to their concerns and share faith and prayer stories in a comfortable setting, such as their church, their school or their home.

How do I make this happen? I have been a liturgical minister for over 40 years listening, speaking, teaching and helping participants grow their faith in a comfortable atmosphere.

Want to explore hosting a Workshop and/or Book Signing Party at your church, school or home, please call 518-587-9999.
