Ministry or Program?...
As you may know I have been all over teaching, and performing leading people to Christ and his Church. One question that has been coming up in recent conversations is the dialogue between ministry and a program.
Although I have a position in faith formation and have structured weekly activities/events it has been a constant reminder that ministry goes way beyond the program. It is not the ones who show up to your event that should only be on your mind it should be everyone in the parish and in the neighborhood. It shouldn't just be the teens(even if its your main focus) but should also be their older/younger brothers and sisters; their parents; grandparents; cousins; friends; classmates, etc that should be in your heart, prayers, intentions, and efforts.
Many have treated the transmitting of the faith merely as work sheets, hand outs, and books. Others have limited it to the events, with lights and music... And still others either the internet, or good preaching, etc.... Some is simply about the fun and the excitement that will engage in faith. Although each one of these things are good and are a part of it all, true ministry is beyond the program.... It is walking with the people and seeing their needs. It is not the easy task, but it is the true mission of Christ and his Church.
