spiritual? What happens when you have religion that is empty of spirit? What happens when we participate
with Christ in making sacrifices for others? How are we affected by giving of ourselves and practicing Christ
like love for the world? Where do we find the courage to be like Christ? How do we offer the sacrifice of our
heart and our commitment to Christ?
