Quick Overview:

Christian living is not a mystery that we solve--it's a mystery that we fall more and more in love with, a mystery Who we fall more and more in love with. Think about it: no earthly marriage includes full disclosure about all the mysteries about the other person, before committing... Consecration will always be a mystery no matter how devoted to God we become--it's love that lets us deepen in this relationship with God. In other words, we're exploring a mystery together, not figuring it out. In order for us to experience consecration for ourselves, it is helpful to learn about the mystery. That's exactly what this booklet and the others in this series are designed to do--to help us learn more about what consecration is… to help make it real. We have a lot to learn… and we have a lot to unlearn, too. Paperback, 33pgs

Christian living is not a mystery that we solve--it's a mystery that we fall more and more in love with, a mystery Who we fall more and more in love with. Think about it: no earthly marriage includes full disclosure about all the mysteries about the other person, before committing. No, that's not how it works. Instead, while the other person is still mostly mysterious to you, you choose to commit. Absent most of the information, we still love. The mystery of your spouse is never solved; its deepened, as your love ever-grows. Love is prior to knowledge. The Creator is Love; love is the life blood of reality itself. Even mentally-handicapped persons, whose capacity to obtain knowledge is in some way inhibited, are still capable of love. Babies, even with so little knowledge about their parents, still love Mommy and Daddy. Consecration will always be a mystery no matter how devoted to God we become--it's love that lets us deepen in this relationship with God. In other words, we're exploring a mystery together, not figuring it out. In order for us to experience consecration for ourselves, it is helpful to learn about the mystery. That's exactly what this booklet and the others in this series are designed to do--to help us learn more about what consecration is… to help make it real. We have a lot to learn… and we have a lot to unlearn, too. Paperback, 33pgs
