Reflection for the Week- April 27th 2009

The church should set out to be part of the process to overthrow political barbarians who sleekly and unjustly abuse their authority. Jesus message is radically subversive and challenges those who wield abortive, yet tremendous power in their own favor. As the chilling atmosphere of political hedonism seeks to establish its own kingdom, Christians want none of it. The journey of following the crucified and risen One and participating in the Kingdom of God is not merely astounding, but it should also raise many a conflict with the ruling elites along the way.

Reflection for the Week- April 20th 2009

Jesus’ ultimate mission and message is the Kingdom of God . Just read the gospels and you’ll find it there over and over again. KOG is the truth that should alert us to what God is up to. What has been awaited for from old had now arrived in Jesus and this, with all that it comprises, is the good news for all with ears to hear. Listen!

Reflection for the Week- April 13th 2009

Life often appears to be like a flickering candle flame dancing in the texturedly stark shadows of nightfall’s gentle breeze. Our dear God, you know we’re such delicately crafted creatures, and that we long for your lasting light. Burning to survive for another day moves us towards destiny and that final meeting with your piercing illumination, where darkness is extinguished and the light never ceases. Resurrection and renewal; earth and body: hope for life and light, in the end, to saturate the whole of God’s creation.

Reflection for the Week- April 6th 2009

As we enter Easter week, let’s remember that we are facing a time of unprecedented turbulence and uncertainty in our world. Take moments out, especially this week, to focus on and pray about the truth and power of the cross and resurrection of Christ being made known to all tribes and nations.
