Pew Leaflet Sunday 23 April

REFLECTION FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER We often focus on Thomas’s doubting of Jesus in this passage. But that’s not the focus of the writer of John’s gospel. Nor is it the focus of Jesus. Both the Gospel writer and Jesus focus on Thomas’s journey to faith. We may be tempted to consider Jesus’ …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 16 April 2017

REFLECTION FOR HOLY WEEK Christ is Risen! Once again we proclaim the awesome mystery of our faith! When we keep the resurrection in the past – making it only a historical event, and arguing about the facts and details – we keep its transforming power at bay. It’s easy to say “Jesus is risen” without …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 9 April 2017

Once again we come to what many consider to be the most significant week in the Christian Calendar. For the next seven days we journey through the last week of Jesus’ life, through the conflict, rejection, execution and burial of Christ. What makes this journey so important is that it reveals the true values of …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 2 April 2017

Death for Jesus was [not…] something to be conquered or overcome. Rather, death was a part of life, something to be received and then absorbed and transformed into a deeper, fuller life. This is why he challenged Martha to believe that he is the resurrection and the life. The truth is, when we allow the …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 12 March 2017

REFLECTION FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY IN LENT The faith that leads to new birth, which Jesus offered to Nicodemus, is a transforming encounter with a God who leads us into a whole new world – the world of God’s Reign, where children are the leaders, the meek inherit the earth, and the poor, the mourners …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 5 March 2017

The first week of Lent always leads us to contemplate the temptations of Jesus. We do this, firstly, to learn more about who Jesus was, and the kind of Messiah he chose to be. Then, secondly, we allow Jesus’ victory over temptation to inspire and strengthen us to face our own temptations. It’s important to …
