Week 1: 22 June 2020; Change your Life by Changing Your Mind Msgr Raun will be discussing, Romans 12:2 “Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern the will of God…” Another way of saying this would be by changing the way you think. God is far more interested in changing your mind than in changing your circumstances. Many times, we pray that God changes our life circumstances, the pain, the suffering and the sadness, but God is saying we need to change our thoughts, because nothing really happens to us until we change the way we think renew our minds.

Winning With The Hand You Are Dealt
July 20, 2020 • Msgr. Douglas Raun
Msgr Raun will give a presentation on the being the person who God created you to be. We read in Ecclesiastes 7:18 “A person who fears God deals responsibly with all of reality, not just a piece of it” If we are to be the person God created up to be, we must look at every area of our life. We will have to deal with eh gifts, skills, and talents God has given to us, to be who God wants us to be and not who we want to be. We will discuss five factors that influence who we are in life. We will learn how to win the game with the hand we have been dealt.
The Reality Choice
July 13, 2020 • Msgr. Douglas Raun
Msgr Raun will be discussing how the childhood game Whack-A-Mole is a fitting metaphor for our lives. It seems that no matter how many times we whack evil down, it always pops up again and again and again. This is true of persistent sin and temptations in our lives, Msgr will give us guidance on how to unplug the power from sin and temptation in our lives, how to relinquish our control in our lives and to follow the word of God and to let go of our control and let God guide.
The Battle For Your Mind
July 6, 2020 • Msgr. Douglas Raun
Msgr Raun will tell us about the violent battle that is going on in our lives and around us 24 hours a day. It is the battle for our Mind. The battle is vicious, intense and unrelenting and unfair, because Satan never plays fair. The battle is intense as the greatest asset you have in your life is your mind. Msgr will discuss six principles on how we can strengthen our minds, take captive our thoughts and learn how to become effective for Christ.
