Pew leaflet Sunday 2 October 2016

In a world where following Jesus is often framed as a way to great personal benefit, the readings this week offer us a different way of living and believing. We do not need huge faith to follow Jesus. We just need to be willing to follow with faith as tiny as a minute seed. And …

The parable of the Dishonest Manager shows how different things are in the world. Here the manager, who had been wasteful, has to use dishonest means to win friends in order to secure his future. He has no hope or expectation of a grace that can save or restore him, so he is left to …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 11 September 2016

God se liefde is dieselfde vir alle mense, gister, vandag en môre. Dit vra van my ’n keuse. Het ek ’n hart vol vreugde omdat God mense wat verlore was, teruggebring het? Of is ek soos ’n moderne Fariseër en skrifgeleerde – kwaad vir God? Kwaad omdat hierdie mense my rustige, sorgvuldig-aanmekaar-gesitte wêreld op sy …

Jesus verduidelik die koste van dissipelskap. Om Jesus te volg verg ’n allesopofferende houding. Jy moet bereid wees om van jou familie afstand te doen en om jou kruis te dra en in Jesus se voetspore te volg. Eers dan kan jy ’n ware dissipel wees. Daarom moet jy sorgvuldig die koste bereken voordat jy …

Pew Leaflet 28 August 2016

”Gospel humility (a key theme of Luke’s Gospel) is not a religious holiness motivated by self-hatred or submissiveness. As taught by Christ, humility is an awareness of who we are before God; of our constant need for God and our dependence on God for everything; of the limitlessness of God’s love and forgiveness. Today’s Psalm, …

“Roeping” is vandag die goue draad wat deur al vier ons tekste geweef is. By almal is daar die versugting na dapperheid en volharding in die uitvoer van ons roeping. Jeremia ontvang as jong seun sy roeping. Hy voel dat hy te jonk is en nog nie goed kan praat nie. Die psalm bekyk roeping …

Pew Leaflet 14 August 2016

As followers of Jesus we may be tempted to believe that we should never be involved in conflict or disagreements. The challenge we must accept as Christ-followers, is not whether we will face conflict or not, but rather what the reasons will be for the conflicts we face. This calls for discernment, courage, and wisdom. …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 7 August 2016

When we live with alertness and readiness, it’s not that we’re waiting to be evacuated from this planet to go to an otherworldly bliss. It’s that we’ve learned that God’s presence is always coming to us, and God’s Reign is always breaking into our world, and so we must always be ready to see it, …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 31 July 2016

Most Bibles call it the "Parable of the Rich Fool". What makes the man in the parable foolish is not his wealth, but his desire to hoard his wealth. It is easy to say the words of faith, to sing the songs of faith, and to attend the gatherings of a community of faith. But, …
