Thought for the week (from Sunday’s sermon)

Thought for the Week | Roots |


We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for God’s grace to enter and do the rest. (Óscar Romero)
