A year-long initiative by a Michigan bishop to inspire greater Christian discipleship among clergy and laypeople has now attracted more than 11,000 weekly subscribers.
“I’m delighted, humbled and, yes, a little surprised by the degree of enthusiasm for the Disciples Together on the Way initiative,” said Bishop Earl Boyea of Lansing.
“I just pray that the initiative is helping more and more people across the Diocese of Lansing — and even beyond — to live more authentic, deeper, and happier Christian lives as disciples of Jesus Christ.”
Bishop Boyea’s Disciples Together on the Way initiative sends a weekly discipleship challenge to subscribers via a text message every Friday. Each challenge attempts to help subscribers acquire a different good habit of Christian discipleship in four key areas: prayer, catechesis, community, and apostolate.
