A World of Possibilities

In Genesis 12:2 God says: “I will bless you … so that you will be a blessing.” The New Testament Beatitudes, the teachings of Jesus, provide the blueprint to accomplish this. As we give thanks for our blessings we are also called to reflect on how we have been and can be blessing for others.
