Eileen and I really enjoyed our time together at the Convocation. It is always good to slow down and thank God for all that he has done in our lives.
Here is a "small thing" that we implemented as a result of the convocation.
I am a physical therapist and have been teaching continuing education classes over the weekends for many years. While I always schedule these classes so that "I" can get to Mass on Saturday or Sunday evenings, I have never given much thought to the attendees.
One of the great speakers at the Convocation mentioned behind the scenes "influencers" that have steered some great Church or Lay leaders in the right direction with just a small nudge. This same speaker mentioned faith based Corporations that are closed for business on Sundays, as an example of one such "nudge."
Right at that moment, Eileen (my soulmate of 36+ years) turned to me and said, " I guess you should stop teaching classes on Sundays, so EVERYONE has a chance to honor the Lord's Day!" BAM! BAM!
I have changed my class lecture / lab times to be a few hours on Thursday and Friday evenings, and then all day on Saturdays. Sundays are for the Lord. The change has been well received by all thus far.
