Earlier this summer, I was able to connect with Daniel McCormick, another Say Yes to Holiness Summit panelist from this spring’s Say Yes to Holiness Tranformation Online Summit.
Daniel is the Director of the Office of Religious Education for the Diocese of Birmingham, and am privileged to also call him friend and brother in Christ.
Daniel is a happy husband, a father of 3, and a catechist who is currently working for the diocese. He previosuly has served as a Catholic school teacher, parish director of religious education, and done sacramental preparation for children, youth and adults. He is commited to building up fruitful, prayerful relationships among collegues in catechesis, to forming partnerships with paretns in handing on the Faith to their children, and to a holistic vision of faith formation that encounters each person–uniquely made in God’s image and likeness–accompanying each one to deeper friendship with the Lord and to mission.
In this special episode of the Say Yes to Holiness podcast, Daniel and Christina continue the conversation begun during the Say Yes Summit, by focusing upon pursuing relationships, friendships and “new habits of mind,” especially now in the midst of the COVID pandemic.
I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation and gain as much inspiration as I did about what Daniel shares about striving for deeper relationships, growing in trust and letting go of all the things that might stop us from being able to bring Jesus to others and form “new habits of mind.”
The Say Yes to Holiness Transformation Online Summit had more than 30 speakers and panelists come together to focus upon the question of how to “Pivot Towards Our Best Selves” in these challenging times.
