There are many paths to heaven. Each one of us is called to discover our own unique way to grow in holiness whether it be as a parent, spouse, babysitter, beautician, bartender, or businessperson. No matter the occupation or role we play in life, there are ten characteristics that should shine in the life of every Christian disciple. Each independent talk explores three or four of the ten important attitudes that will shape each one of us into the person God calls us to be, with segments focused on:
Relational and Self-giving Love
Compassion, Surrender, and Being Contemplative
Living in the Present Moment and Passion for Peace and Justice
Gratitude and Your Own Unique Path to Holiness
