Our Identity in Christ | Meet the Master

You are invited to spend some time with Pilgrim Center of Hope and reflect on our identity in Christ!

Have you ever asked yourself, “who am I?” This is one of life’s common and complicated questions. In Baptism we are brought into the family of God as a child of God, and given a gift of the Holy Spirit. This makes up part of our identity as a child of God! Mary Jane unpacks this topic and invites us to ponder Psalm 139:13-16, which speaks about our uniqueness!

Also, Mary Jane also takes a dive into this month’s virtue,  patience. This is a virtue that can perhaps save our lives because it helps us from responding to situations that may result in calamity or worse.
