Fr. Jonathan Morris Calls Us to Be the Light of the World
In 1945, Father James Keller saw a world at war, the beginnings of the cold war, and divisions at home.
He was a man who believed that against all odds one person could make a difference - so he started a grass-roots movement called The Christophers - literally "Christbearers" - in the belief that each individual has a role in bringing hope and change to a troubled world.
And the response was staggering. The world was hungry for the message, and embraced Fr. Keller's motto:
"IT IS BETTER TO LIGHT ONE CANDLE THAN TO CURSE THE DARKNESS."
In 2014, the world is just as dangerous and chaotic, and in many ways far more insidious than in Fr. Keller's day. No one knows the extent of this crisis better than Father Jonathan Morris, popular author and FOX news analyst.
Here, in his new book Light in the Darkness, Fr. Johnathan brings you eight of the core teachings of Fr. Keller, along with his own insights, showing us how they relate to us today.
- A Sense of Purpose
- The Power of Love
- Sharing the Faith
- The Witness of Life
- Pray Always
- Becoming Like Christ
- Living as a Christian
- Trusting God
Fr. Jonathan believes that now is the time for each of us to realize our own roles, and become "Christophers" in the world we live in today.
