Lenten Reflection – by Leon Taylor

Can I as an individual really make a difference? I have no super powers or unique talents. My intelligence level, to be honest, is very average. What impact could I have on solving the ills of our society? Let us dwell on this question.
When God placed us in this paradise called Earth, we were each given certain talents or gifts. We have the ability to reason. We can discern right from wrong. We can learn.
Jesus showed us the way. He came to us as a mere mortal of humble birth, yet, he impacted the world like no one before or since. He championed the poor, the sick, and the weak. He showed us the power of love and faith. We have but to follow the examples and teachings of Christ and, with prayer, we can make a difference.
