St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 11

"Happy those who hear God's word and keep it." (Luke 11: 28)

How do we take the teachings of Jesus seriously in our complicated world? Jesus taught non-violence, but how do we reflect this in our political decision-making? Jesus taught love our neighbour, but how do we follow this when dealing with difficult people at work or in our neighbourhood? Are we prepared for ridicule, harassment or being ostracised? We need to ask for strength to use our gifts to build communities marked by love, justice and peace.

Lord, open my heart to your tenderness, my mind to your understanding, and my life to your challenging love. Amen.
