Comments on Teaching Presentations

“There was a sense of ‘truth’ that ran through the whole day.”


“The clearest & most extensive account of the charisms that I have heard.”


“The best part of the day was the practical live examples & sharing of stories; it was really inspirational listening to testimonies.”


“Makes us think about what God is really calling us to on our personal mission rather than what we would like to do, or feel we ought to do . Makes me really want to find out what path I should follow.”


“Very evangelizing – talking about the living God; God’s love; The Holy Spirit and doing everything in prayer.”


“I like the passion behind Called & Gifted – I feel empowered to develop my own charisms.”


“I enjoyed hearing the personal stories of how operating from charisms changes things and allows the kingdom to break through.”


“The teaching day was thoughtful and supportive and based in the real world.”


“It was good to know that it is OK to be different and to understand why there are some tasks I shy away from.”


“Lovely Presenters – relaxed and authentic – bit of humour!”


“I understand other people, including my priest, much better”


“The message was powerful and personal. I felt God speak to me directly”
