Give your friends a chance to walk the journey with you
In this Motherhouse Road Trip edition of "Ask Sister," we talk with Sr. Bonita Gacnik and Carol Jean Van Den Hemel , Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery of Yankton, South Dakota. A listener asks about finding a way to fill a spiritual emptiness in her life. Most of her friends are atheists, and she considers herself agnostic, having grown up in a household where religion was not openly practiced. She's afraid of the unknowingness of where God calls us.
She's afraid: How radically will my life change if I start going to church?
