Jeremiah 31: 33 / Psalm 119: 98, 103-104 / 2 Timothy 3: 14-17, 4: 1-5 / Luke 18: 1-8

The message is clear.

God has written it on our hearts. Persevere in sharing the good news of God’s grace and love, through our words and actions. This continuous message over millennia, from the time of Jeremiah to Paul to this day, reminds us God places faith and hope in our hearts.

2 Timothy 3 echoes our times, where people are ‘itching to hear’ words of hope in ways they want, that are not always best choices or God’s Way of living with justice, in peace. Let us share God’s good news, offering warming acceptance, embracing love, enriching wisdom, while we live with good conduct, persevere with justice and be peace-makers for all.

In the midst of the busyness we are called to, we have the treasured presence of One who knows us beyond our own understanding, and who equips and qualifies us ‘to do every kind of good deed’. How sweet is that?

Reflection of the Week - 8th November 2022

On All Saints Day we recall the great cloud or crowd of witnesses who have gone before, who are with us now, and who will be beyond our time. On All Souls Day we remember those who have passed away. What a wonderful annual reminder that God’s love reaches across all time and space.

Reflection of the Week - 15th November 2022

Once we know that the entire physical world around us, all of creation, is both the hiding place and the revelation place for God, this world becomes home, safe, enchanted, offering grace to any who look deeply. —Richard Rohr, The Universal Christ

Reflection of the Week - 22nd November 2022

The words “gratitude” and “grace” come from the same root word, gratia in Latin. . . . “Grace” is a theological word, one with profound spiritual meaning. Grace means “unmerited favor.”
