All The Small Things

Pastor Sean Palmer tells the story of Thérèse of Lisieux, and the “little way” that guided her faith. He asks us to consider the unique and vital gifts that God has given each of us, and how they might be used in every seemingly small but impactful way as a blessing to the collective body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:7-12

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

“I feel within me other vocations. I feel the vocation of the WARRIOR, THE PRIEST, THE APOSTLE, THE DOCTOR, THE MARTYR…I feel the the need and the desire of carrying out the most heroic deeds for You.”

— Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

“I finally had rest…I understood that if the church has a body composed of different members, the most necessary and most noble of all could not be lacking to it, and so I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart is BURNING WITH LOVE…MY VOCATION IS LOVE.”

— Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”
