Our Story …
When Deacon heard music coming from the Church, he went over to see what was going on. He found the Grand Knight picking at his guitar and singing a little too. Not only was Brother Jerry a leader in the local Knights of Columbus council, but he also served as the music director for the parish.
Brother Jerry appeared to be frustrated.
It Is Written …
The Bible tells us that we can do all things through Christ who is our strength (Phil 4:13). Of course, we’re not called to do “all things,” but we are capable of doing more than we believe we can.
It’s not really about success either. Or victory, for that matter. The Bible tells us that we are more than conquerors Rom 8:37-39). We are friends of God (John 15:15) in Christ.
Our chief work is to love — God and man. And our great challenge is to get to know the One who created us.
Life Goes On …
Sometimes God sends a friend to us who has an answer we need. The friend might not even know he was sent by God. And in the case of Deacon, he doesn’t know the power of his words either.
Deacon was just there. He was with his friend and brother Knight Jerry. He really didn’t believe he had anything that might help Jerry with his struggles to write a new song. But a simple question was all that was needed.
“What’s it about,” Deacon asked Jerry. Jerry understood Deacon to say, “What’s the purpose?” And that’s all he needed!
You don’t have to have the answers to help a friend in need. You don’t have to have the solution either. Sometimes, your presence is enough. Of course, Deacon already knew that, but it never hurts to have a reminder.
That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic. And it’s cool to be a Knight too! COOL2B!
Thank you, Jesus! In Christ.
