This week's reflection reminds us of the real story of Christmas.
Reflection of the Week - 12 November 2019
Posted in Faith
Sometimes it feels like God is not doing anything,
and when we pray, we are met with an awful silence.
The Jews must have felt like that,
as for ages they looked in vain for their coming Messiah.
“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son...” (Galatians 4:4)
“Then they cried to the Lord in their need,
and he rescued them from their distress,
and he led them along the right way...” (Psalm 107:6)
Lord, your timing is always perfect,
even though we don't always recognise it at the time.
You see with an eternal perspective,
and are motivated by love.
Let us use the gift of hindsight, looking back
on the wisdom of God's timing and his actions.
Knowing this, let us walk by faith
in our present.

This week's reflection reminds us to keep trusting in God.
As you celebrate this Christmas, and in the coming weeks, I invite you to remember in your prayers the South Australian communities who have been devastated by the bushfire events of the past few days which have shocked us all.
