the conscience Pastoral strategy: accompaniment Grace: our encounter with God Bill Huebsch, 2018 Conscience Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) 37: We have found it hard to allow the consciences of the faithful to guide them. The key: We in the Church are called to help form consciences, not replace them with our rules.

understanding of grace Turn to the Gospels And really ALL of the New Testament A major theme kept appearing: Power exousia exousia 102 dunamis

120 The miraculous power of God! From Luke... And Mary said to the angel, "How shall this be, since I have no husband?" And the angel said to her: The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will fill you. Luke 1:34-35a From Luke...

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee and a report concerning him went out through all the surrounding country. Luke 4:14 From Luke... And he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee and all were astonished at his teaching, for his word was delivered with great power. Luke 4:32

From Luke... He summoned the twelve and gave them power and authority and he sent them to proclaim the Reign of God and to heal the sick. Luke 9:1 Acts 1 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in

Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 1 Corinthians 1 18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

2 Corinthians 4 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us. This being filled with power is Grace!

It is an encounter with God! Grace is God communicating Gods own self to us And Gods own self Is Love! GOD LOVES YOU! We receive the power
