Context 4

Sunday 24 January

Prayers today are for the church in context.

An area in the Anglican Communion place outside the circle (and a possibility of fixing the date of Easter.)

One particular area of the church has worked on their own time, and a little quicker than others, on something objectionable to another part of the church. The result? That part of the church has been barred from functioning  within the communion, as opposed to recognition of the different context and the validity of such contexts, in context as it were. I cannot see that this is of benefit to anyone.

Billy Connolly wrote:

“Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares?…..he’s a mile away and you’ve got his shoes.”

Another boxed ticked!

Prayer is needed indeed!

Another Point

Another John the Baptist reading in a different setting. A new ministry beginning as a prison chaplain.

The reading and liturgy pointed to ministry amongst the imprisioned, but all that was spoken called out to each visitor, prison officer and fellow chaplain.

Each prayer and acclamation point the individual back to God through right relationship and the nurturing of self to God through th the same interaction.

Hear, then, this Advent call.
