Our reflection for Tuesday’s readings:
“Therefore, encourage one another and build up one another, as indeed you do.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
 
You might recall in my last reflection dated June 29th, I mentioned that I decided to step away from teaching here at St. Monica after 12 years without having another job lined up. This decision was way out of my comfort zone. I am a planner. I always seem to be thinking two steps ahead because it gives me a sense of security. For me to quit one job without having another job lined up was a bit risky. But I decided to take a leap of faith.
 
When people heard about my decision to step away from teaching, not only was I thanked for my time and service, but people, including many of you, told me that you would be praying for me during this time of discernment. I was grateful for that. But I was also overwhelmed with your care and support. And for that I am grateful, too.
 
As of three weeks ago, I am now working for Catholic Charities at Holy Family Shelter here in Indianapolis. I couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity. I don’t think I could have landed this job without the encouragement of my wife, family, friends, and for you. For me, my situation is today’s scripture coming to life. Because I believe that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
 
Today and always, let us encourage one another so others may continue to see the goodness of the Lord.
 
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,
Tim Bush
