Week 6: Step by Step: Sainthood Through the Little Things

May 17, 2012 — Greg Baxley, a husband and father and a member of Emmanuel parish, was with us at Theology on Tap tonight to share with us the many little ways that we can grow in holiness and sainthood throughout our daily lives.  No matter what job we have, or what state of life we are in currently, God is calling us to grow closer to him through our daily lives.  Thank you, Greg, for helping us to better understand and respond to our call to Sainthood.

And a big thank you to all of our speakers this season!

See you all in the fall!
