St. Paul reminds the faithful that “A little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough” (Galatians 5:9). As Christians, we must be like leaven, carrying the love and joy of Christ to the world, especially where no one else will go.
The love and joy that nurtures us through the encounter of Christ ought to transform the world through our work. We, like yeast thrown into dough, must be conduits of the animation of the Holy Spirit, allowing God’s grace to transform the world in us and through us!
The office of Missionary Discipleship in the Diocese of Cleveland promotes six strategic initiatives that will engender a culture of encounter from an evangelizing community. These strategic initiatives appropriately spell the word, LEAVEN. These initiatives challenge how we ought to think about ministry and live our lives, integrating faith in our communities, committing to be tabernacles of the Holy Spirit.
