“Go and sell your possessions and give them to the poor” Jesus said to a young wealthy man who inquired of him how he could find eternal life. The man, counting the cost of this invitation and deciding it was too much, became sad, turned, and walked away.
1200 years later a young wealthy man from Assisi received a similar invitation. This young man, and many after him, responded to that call to relinquish all that they had, and in doing so found a life of freedom and abundance as they stepped into a life of following God incarnate, Jesus Christ.
In what ways do our possessions possess us? How are we captivated by comfort? To what do we look for our security?
Join us on the Franciscan Way starting on June 28 as we explore these questions and more.
