Advent Thought

Born in the night, Mary’s child
A long way from your home;
Coming in need Mary’s child,
Born in a borrowed room.
 
The words of this carol have been on my mind throughout Advent. We can’t have failed to see the pictures of refugees on our television screens. Refugees from around the world. In very recent days we have seen the horrific pictures from Aleppo. Among the many people leaving their own countries are women carrying young children, many are pregnant!!

Easter Thoughts

Loving, mysterious God, as Easter approaches we take time now to think of the importance of the Easter story.

On Palm Sunday we remember how the crowds were shouting “Hallelujah” as you entered Jerusalem, perhaps the same crowd that shouted “Crucify” on Good Friday! Where would we have been? What would we have been shouting?

Forgive us Lord when we sometimes abandon you when service requires commitment and sacrifice!  We’re not always willing to walk the way of the cross!

As well as pain and rejection Jesus suffered injustice and betrayal.

Lent Thoughts

Dear Lord.  
As we continue our journey through lent, as we reflect upon the pain and the suffering and the rejection, we think of all those within our society who are plagued by emotions that tear them apart. We think of those trapped in depression, who struggle against the darkness and the loneliness. We think of all those who are trapped in abusive relationships, struggling to find a way out, and for all those who’s path seems uncertain, who struggle for direction and guidance.
