We all need this living water, and we all long for Jesus’ promise. And, for those of us who have found the faith to trust it, and have opened to the Spirit, we know the value of the gift that God gives us in Christ. But, this is not just a once-off thing. We need …

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 …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 26 February 2017

As we reflect on the Transfiguration, our task is to recognize the way God’s glory is revealed in Jesus – not just in his miracles and resurrection, but also in his sacrificial death. We can take comfort in God’s affirmation of Jesus because it reveals something of God’s heart. We all face times of struggle, …

Pew Leaflet 19 February 2017

If we really want to “be perfect as God is perfect” we must learn to love our enemies. This means that it’s not enough to just refuse to retaliate. We must also seek the best for those who hurt us. And, if doing this makes us like God, we can’t even find refuge in the …

If you look at all the “laws” Jesus offers in today’s reading you will see that he moves from outward observance to heart attitude in every case. Instead of focussing on murder, Jesus confronts anger. Instead of adultery, he confronts lust and the abuse of women in divorce. In place of vow-making, Jesus calls for …

The metaphor of salt and light is a powerful one. Neither salt nor light are valuable because of what they are in themselves. Salt is valuable because it brings out the flavour in food, and light is valuable because it brings out the colour and beauty of the world. In these verses Jesus is calling …

God of all blessing, in Christ you open for us a new way of living: purge us of our easy acceptance of the ways of the world, and forge in us the radical vision of your reign, that your will may be done on earth as in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives …
