This week's reflection focuses on waiting and the wisdom of God's timing.
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.

Whether on the front line with Australian troops or working with military personnel and their families, Defence Force chaplains like Uniting Church minister Rev Charles Vesely are a potent reminder that the end state of conflict is always peace.
All Uniting Church members are encouraged to pray for those attending the upcoming Presbytery and Synod meeting, which will be held at Adelaide West Uniting Church from 23-25 November.
