September 9, 2012 – Does God Have a Plan for My Life?

In today’s show, Janis and Fr. Peter discuss in more detail the good news that God has a beautiful and unique plan for each person’s life. Discerning God’s plan is not only possible; it is an essential part of the Christian life. This discernment process is more than discovering and choosing one’s vocation. It is at the very heart of an ongoing, intimate personal relationship with Jesus. It’s about inviting Him into the many choices we face every day. And the more we enter into God’s plan for our lives, the more effective instruments we will be for the New Evangelization which the world so desperately needs at this critical juncture. Please join us next Sunday as we discuss the theme, “Will God’s Plan Make Me Happy”.
