In the reflection this week, Uniting Church members are invited to share a prayer for National Missing Persons Week (30 July - 5 August) contributed by Senior Constable Robyn Ferraro from Missing Persons Investigation Section (148) of the SA Police.
Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Fear of change makes me want to cling to the way things have always been done. I wonder if I am reluctant to look outside the square to see the new thing God will do, in and through me.
Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
- Isaiah 43:18-19a
Open my eyes, dear God, to the wonders of nature, where new things are being created every day. Open my heart and my mind to see the endless possibilities that change can bring. I want to allow God to make a path through the wilderness of mindless routine. To make way for the new thing God will do.

This week's reflection focuses on Psalm 139:11-12: “If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.”
This week's reflection focuses on cycles of creativity and the need to make time for rest.
