Someone recently sent us this article. It presents a compelling vision of church that all would want to be part of. It's worth reading and reflecting on. Why do you come to church? Does your attitude build the church or tear it down?
We had a great night at families at five recently making resurrection gardens! Each family got to take one home to tender over the Easter Season! They also got the book, "What would Jesus Drive!"
Because the Qld Govt is considering legislation around VAD, the Uniting Church is doing a consultation in this area. For those interested here is my submission. They have extended the consultation period to Friday 15th March, 5pm.
You would also be welcome to make a submission to the State Government's inquiry. https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/work-of-committees/committees/HCDSDFVPC/inquiries/current-inquiries/AgedCareEOLPC
From the Sermon on the Law in the Sermon on the Mount. This target can help us understand grace. Christ gives us many targets to aim for - faithfulness in relationships, do not murder, do not lie. If we see ourselves in the centre, it's easy to look down and judge others. This is the position of the Pharisees. But Jesus showed us that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God! Only Christ is perfect - in the bullseye!
We're all scattered around the target having missed the mark [sinned]. When we understand ourself as the green arrow, we can throw away all pretence. A forgiven sinner who can embrace those around them as we all aim towards Christ, the author and perfecto of our faith! What a welcoming church that will be. Aiming Christward, but embracing all who understand their sainted sinner position.
Love gardening but live in a complex that doesn't allow it? Come and be part of our Community Garden project!Wed mornings 9am
Our resident Historian Margaret Henry has done a wonderful job producing a FIVE volume collections of 'selected readings' from past church Council [etc] meetings covering the era 1977 [Church Union] to the building of our current building . It is fascinating reading!
You can find them all here.
