Twenty Helps When Looking for a Move

St. Sylvester and the eve of change

St. Sylvester stands as an example to the Church in 2016 and 2017. We still have issues about our public presentation and relationship to various governments. We still struggle with reconciliation, especially among different races. And we still divide ourselves over fundamental theological disagreements. Perhaps our New Year's resolution, as a church, ought not to be to solve these problems too quickly.
