This week we remember what the peace of Christ means. We are reminded by the songs and declarations of Simeon and Anna.
This week we learn about how to give and receive love. We learn how to need people and how to be needed by people and how this need calls us to discipleship. Our mutuality is part of our sanctification.
We look at the Magnificat – Mary’s prayer in Luke 1 as she meets with Elizabeth in a small Judean town.
We take a brief detour into the Luke reading this week and find Jesus encouraging us to bring our experiences of injustice, our frustration, our pain to God in prayer. We are invited and instructed to assault God with our prayers. Will we do so? Or will we lose faith?
Christ the King Sunday – What kind of king do we worship? (The recording starts a little late this week – read the passage before listening and you’ll be caught up!)
Jesus warns of difficult times ahead, not so that his disciples will avoid them, but so that they will be prepared to work in the midst of them.
