  • Reflection for the week commencing Sunday 2nd October:

    Scripture:

    'Beware of ... hypocrisy.  Nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known'.  (Luke 12. 1-2)

    Reflection:

    How would you feel if every thought you've ever had was suddenly played on a huge screen in the sky for everyone to see?  I'd feel pretty embarrassed, even horrified! 

    Until someone invents such a screen, I can quite easily hide the thoughts I'm not proud of from other people, but there is one person I can't hide them from....God.  In the verse above Jesus is warning his disciples of the dangers of being hypocritical - thinking one way, but behaving another.  God wants us to be honest with Him and with other people -' let your yes be yes and your no be no' is a familiar verse in Matthew's gospel. Being honest and open is much easier than pretending and covering things up.  Thankfully, there is nothing we can do to stop God loving us, even when we mess things up, so let's make things easier for ourselves - be honest, be true, in all you think and all you do.

    Care:

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
    Now is still a time to care for your neighbour. Please, pick up the phone, speak to them. We are a strong community, a caring community. Together we are getting through this.

    Finally, I encourage you to use these prayers when you get up and when you go to bed:

    A prayer in the morning:

    Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’. Be with me today, as I offer myself to you. Hear my prayers for others and for myself, and keep me in your care. Amen.

    A prayer in the evening:

    God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light,:we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper. To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Keep safe. Keep well. Keep praying. God bless you. With love, David
