From the Pastor's Desk

     The term "humility" comes from the Latin word humilitas, a noun related to the adjective humilis, which may be translated as "humble", but also as "grounded", or "from the earth". This is because the term comes from another Latin word, humus (earth). Because the idea of “humility” addresses our deepdown thoughts of self-worth, relationships and perspective, it is important for our faith development.     
     In the days of Jesus, humility was an appreciation of oneself, one's talents, skills, and virtues. It was not meekness or self-critical thinking, but noticing oneself in relation to something higher. Humility is not about thinking lowly of oneself, but to appreciate who one has become.
