Pew Leaflet Sunday 21 May 2017

The ability to recognize God’s Spirit is not about being a spectator. We don’t just “see” the Spirit” we are invited to “receive” the Spirit – to be filled by God’s presence and power. This is why Jesus promised the disciples that they would not be left as orphans, but that they would see him …

REFLECTION FOR THE FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER If following Christ is seen as a way to avoid suffering and struggle, we will deeply disappointed by the message of this week’s Lectionary readings.

Pew Leaflet Sunday 7 May 2017

Jesus… seems to mix his metaphors, referring to himself as both the shepherd and the gate through which the shepherd leads the sheep to pasture. There is a good reason for these two images. As the door, Jesus both protects the sheep from thieves and predators, and provides a way to shelter and food. As …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 30 April 2017

Many people today are following their own version of the Emmaus road. They are walking in disappointment. They are walking away from hope. For many this involves walking away from the church. It’s striking that Jesus begins with a question: ‘What are you discussing together as you walk along?’(17) Luke captures the drama of it. …

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’ …

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 …

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 …
