23 Jesus said to him, ‘If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes.’ – Mark 9:23 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)
I, Brian K. Stark, wanted to reach out to all my readers here on Listening Faithfully and welcome you back to another year of inspired postings about God and His divine promises which He has faithfully kept from the beginning of time to this very moment! Like Jesus said, “All things are possible to those who believe.” Therefore I believe in all of you my faithful readers and followers that we can continue growing in this new year despite all of our challenges we face!
Concerning the Changes
As you all can see this website looks different, and this evolution will continue during the course of this year. Some of the changes you will experience are in the shorter format of the blog postings, the addition of an eStore, the ability to help support our efforts to evangelize, and in the new, “Follow Me!”, button at the bottom right-hand corner of every page. Other exciting innovations soon in coming is the recorded as well as written devotionals found on the Teacher Devotional Page that include deep insights and funny stories about my life and experiences. As many of you know I began Listening Faithfully back in 2009, and without the inspiring interactions with all my readers and followers, these postings could have never been able to reach a global audience. However, as a teacher, I know true growth is found in the constant practice and dedication to self-reflection, constantly diving deeper into one’s own talents always listening to others more experienced, opening your mind to other peoples’ ideas whether you personally agree with them or not; there is always something to be learned. Ignorance begins with turning away and refusing to see other peoples ideas, and that is a deeply personal decision on the part of the person who has chosen to put that wall up! I would like to believe that by listening to all of you I have made the changes that everyone can enjoy and take part in. I look forward to keeping everyone up-to-date with the ongoing changes and look for all your comments and support as we continue our journey together in developing our love and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Saint Joseph, Pray for us. ~ Sancte Ioseph – ‘ora pro nobis,’
Now go spread the word!
