Being A Beloved Community of Active Citizens

Holy Spirit Verona Mission Trip 2018

In July 2017, I joined eleven Verona residents on a Mission Trip to Grace House on the Mountain in St. Paul, VA.  This Episcopal Church sponsored organization hosts groups of caring individuals weeks at a time to complete construction projects in the surrounding towns and neighborhoods.  Grace House is owned and operated by the Diocese of SW Virginia, but is open to any group of active citizens wanting to make a difference.

Will You Wrestle With Me?

Jacob and God

“When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.” – Genesis 32:25

Will you wrestle with me? by Father Jerry (FJ) Racioppi

Probably not a question you would expect me to ask, but you are sure to know that I am not speaking about physical wrestling.  My question really is: Will you let me walk with you as we wrestle with faith together?
