Reflection For The Week

Dear God, as we Your children prepare ourselves for the end of year examinations, we feel the great strong wind. As strong as in the experience of Elijah, as it is splitting Boland, Overberg and Table mountains and breaking rocks in pieces…

We feel the anxiety as if we are experiencing an earthquake shaking our faith. We have written many examinations God, but this one has put so much pressure on us, as if we have never done it before. As you did to Elijah, we too depend on the support of our Diocese, Archdeaconries and parishes; we have built a strong foundation of faith. We can hear you talking to us in a calm and quiet voice.

We hear the words you said to Joshua, “I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you… Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go",

Do then, we trust You on this journey that we will succeed and pass these examination as You are on our side.

Reflection For The Week

In Luke 17: 1-4, Jesus warns his disciples against causing one of the "the little ones" to stumble. Jesus says that causing someone to stumble is worse than drowning to death. Since Jesus, in Luke, often sets the discipleship bar very high, it is not surprising that the disciples feel the need for a greater measure of faith.

So, in17: 5-6, there is a quick interaction about this request. Considering how difficult Jesus makes it to be a disciple, it is no wonder that the disciples ask for greater faith. Having heard what Jesus expects of those who want to follow him, and now hearing Jesus issue such a stern warning, the disciples know they need help.

Jesus tells them they don’t need much faith– only a mustard- seed size is necessary. In the second interchange, 17: 7– 10, Jesus tells the disciples that being a disciple has little to do with the amount of faith one has. It is actually about being a faithful servant.

Reflection For The Week

Why does God allow drought, famine and floods?

This passage of Jeremiah gives us a hint. The image of the potter shows God as the potter and the people and nations as the clay. God’s sovereignty is balanced by our responsibility.

God’s plan was to create a perfect creation, but humans resist that plan, we are the flaws in the clay of the perfect pot that God was creating. From a human point of view it seems that God will scrap that bit of the plan and start again – but His ultimate plan – a perfect creation – is never thwarted. The choice is ours: do we bring disaster on ourselves? or do we change our ways now to avert that future and allow God to re-mold us.
