Part 1 of the Homily

If we are to ask ourselves the question, “are we ready to make a big decision?” That goes along with that which is, “how do we make a decision in the first place?”

Most of our decisions we make are instinctual, we do without conscious direction. But let’s just say, you have a decision before you, that you need to wrestle with. 

How do you do it? Especially if its a big decision. 

In this homily, Rev. Sean Neil-Barron, our Associate Minister, shares with us 3 strategies we might use to make a big decision.
