I was asked to join Alpha as part of my Camino (R.C.I.A.) journey in confirmation within the Catholic Faith. There was some resistance to join for all the wrong reasons, and am glad of God’s gentle nudge to – “Just do it!”
It has been such a beautiful journey as I meet people from different parts of our world. Using Zoom as the tool to connect, I got the opportunity to meet people I otherwise would never have met. Alpha brings together people from all walks of life. On a personal level, it provided me with a platform and opportunity to share and talk about my faith and discuss all those questions that I don’t normally discuss with my friends or family. More importantly, it is a safe space.
My group was international with some joining from outside of Canada. Bonds and affinities are made between each of us as we journey together in a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we fit into the bigger picture called life. Each week, I enjoyed sharing my personal story, and greatly looked forward to hearing their stories. Together we shared in understanding some basic truths about life and our journey in it.
It has lead to my own personal growth. Now, how awesome is that?
