Reflection For The Week

This week’s primary text is about responding to God’s call upon our lives. The primary call as Jesus highlights in the healing of the crippled woman in the gospel text is to bring about freedom, wholeness, healing– salvation. The Jeremiah text and the Psalm for the week both highlight God’s providence and promise to be with us. While sometimes this presence of God is not easily detectable it is sufficient for the Christian to hold on to the promise and walk with faith.

This week presents itself as a good week to encourage people in different vocations, those wrestling with their call and those who have been bent over by oppressive systems. The call to pull down, destroy and plant and build suggests that being a prophet and a Christian is being involved with the constant work of healing and transformation.

Reflection For The Week

There are two kinds of silence. There is the silence of the graveyard. Here silence speaks of one thing – death. This silence tends to frighten and repel.

Then there is the silence of a spring evening. Not a leaf stirs, not a sound is heard except the music of the birds. Yet all things are awake, all things are growing. This silence is mysterious and enchanting.

So there are two kinds of peace. There is the peace of the swamp; things look normal on the surface, but its depths are full of rotten things. Peace that is based on injustice is like that. It is a false peace and Christ came to disrupt it.

But then there is true peace – a peace in which all of God’s children have their basic right respected, and are able to live in freedom and dignity. This is the peace Jesus came to bring. But peace like this doesn’t happen. It has to be made. Sometimes the makers of it will be branded as troublemakers. But Christ had another name for them: children of God…

Reflection For The Week

Today’s Gospel says that both Jesus & the thief come to us ‘@ the hour we least expect’. But there the similarity ends. The thief comes to rob us. Jesus comes to surprise us with His gifts. Like faithful servants we must always be on the alert for His coming.

But are we? Do we not often carelessly and foolishly, as if we were not accountable to God. Alas, many people are much more ready for the coming of the thief than for the coming of Christ. ‘Stay awake, because you do not know the day nor the hour of your master’s return…..

These words should shake us like the wind shakes a tree.
