Why is Jesus so important to me?
The answer Bishop Clark gives on http://spiritualpilgrim.dor.org/ under Commonly Asked Questions is that Jesus anchors our lives. He provides renewal, encouragement and strength for our journey, and hope in new possibilities. Jesus helps us understand our own humanity: our frailties, joys, and sadness. Our permanent relationship with him helps us to understand our neighbor and also, who our God is. Jesus is the full, perfect expression of God’s love for all of us and he demonstrates how we are to live our lives. For these reasons, our attraction to him is inexhaustible.
