'Thin Places'

   From Gosford Anglican' noticeboard archive... how our contribution to and striving for social justice is a matter for what gifts and abilities we bring, how the communities we build are able to respond and where and how we find ourselves encountering need!! But it is definitely "not a passing fashion"!!
"Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God" much better than loving justice, doing mercy...

Topical Last Week and Last Year

   The story has it that Jesus was taken by Joseph and Mary to Egypt seeking asylum in part from Herod's dramatic response to claims of the birth of a new King. The 'Jesus was a refugee' connection to how the story might make sense today [hermeneutics] taps a significant discussion in this country today about the politics of our heartless response to 'boats' of asylum seeking refugees arriving her through Asia. Well done!!
