REFLECTIONS FOR THIS SUNDAY:

How can you use your resources of time, talents and treasures for the sake of God’s reign today?

Practice for Today: One of simplest ways to participate in the work of God’s Reign is to become well-practiced in the discipline of giving. Whether it’s our time, friendship, expertise, compassion, material resources, or solidarity, we all has to contribute that can bless and uplift those around us. Today, find every opportunity to participate in God’s mission through the act of giving. (Sacredise Daily Worship)

Pew Leaflet Sunday 5 November 2017

REFLECTIONS FOR THIS SUNDAY:

The spirituality of the Pharisees was a spirituality of the status quo. They spoke about titles, positions, places of honour, ranking, privileges, a rigid hierarchy. Jesus was against this whole hierarchical system, against the status quo. So Jesus, being a rabbi, was asking the prostitutes, tax collectors and sinners to be part of his inner circle. That’s how he went against the social system, challenged the status quo. So the point is that every time you challenge the status quo, you will have opponents and adversaries. And that is the choice before each one of us as well. (Gospel confronts Life; John De Mello)

Pew Leaflet Sunday 29 October 2017

REFLECTIONS FOR THIS SUNDAY:

Today’s Gospel reading is in two parts. The first is the familiar Great Commandment in which Jesus speaks of the most important commandment in two parts -loving God and loving others. Then he adds the challenging claim that the entire law and the prophets (the Bible as they knew it then) are based on these commandments. If we want to know what righteousness or holiness looks like, then this our answer -it looks like the love of Christ. If we want to know what sin is, this is also our answer -it is anything that stands in the way of Christ like love. The Bible always speaks of love in terms of what we do, rather than what we feel. Love is always expressed through actions of self-giving, service and compassion. Today, allow the love of Jesus to be expressed through you by serving those around you as well as you can.

Pew Leaflet Sunday 22 October 2017

REFLECTIONS FOR THIS SUNDAY:

We may feel that we have to choose between the kingdoms of this world and the kingdom of God. Some may feel that all we can do is worship Jesus on Sundays and then live by the values and priorities of the world during the week. Others may feel that we need to limit our involvement with the world and its systems as much as possible, and retreat into a spiritual compound where we can follow a different way. Jesus… [gives us] an opportunity to allow our faith to interact with the world. In this way, we live in society as good citizens and neighbours, and we fulfil our role in our chosen field. How can you be fully present to the world in which you live while following Jesus’ way in every situation and interaction today? (Sacredise Daily Worship)
