2nd Sunday after the Epiphany

We’ve all been there:  We try to relax by watching Netflix, only to be exhausted by the process of deciding what to watch!  These past months especially we all have a bit of decision fatigue.

As Christians we must, like everyone else, make decisions each day.  How can we make good decisions; truly know what God wants for us at any juncture in our lives?  The story of Samuel and Eli shows that discerning God’s voice and God’s will in our lives is not always easy.  But God makes it possible through reflection, the Word of God and the community of faith.

And even then we can get it wrong, but there is still mercy!
