Our reading for this week has Nathanael sitting under a tree. That sounds a good idea to me (have you been up to the Arboretum lately?) Continue reading

Week 4 – Love in the midst of rejection

Mary proclaimed: “God’s mercy is from generation to generation.  He has lifted up the lowly”. There is no reality of rejection by God. But instead, God’s love knows no bounds, no ends, no limits.

Whatever we face in life, God’s steadfast love surrounds us. Continue reading

These reflections aim to give an opportunity for response no matter where you are in life at this time of year. This week’s reflections reflect on hope in hopelessness.

How are you feeling as we approach Christmas? Continue reading

Advent 2014 candles

Advent 2014  – A Season of Contrasts

Advent is a time of preparation, of getting ready, of counting down to Christmas! It can be exciting and life giving, or overwhelming and distressing. 

Each of the reflections will have 2 suggestions for response that are pastoral (internally focussed reflections) or missional (outwardly focussed actions). These Advent reflections aim to give an opportunity for response no matter where you are in life at this time of year.

As you journey through Advent, may you experience a sense of defiant Hope, unexpected Peace, transforming Joy, and the warmth of Love that Christ brings.  Continue reading
