Feast of St. Joseph the Worker
"Like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." ~ 1 Peter 2:5
Ever notice how little stones make up the floor around the baptismal font and sanctuary in our church? The inspiration for that design came from this passage, and from the fact that much of Grandville is built upon gravel.
Most of the lakes in our area were once gravel pits. Some of our first parishioners earned their livelihood mining and delivering Grandville gravel throughout the region.
For Reflection: I am a living stone, fashioned slowly by my creator and gently set into the sea of life. What ripples am I making with my faith, my work, my sacrifices?
