FAITH IN FOCUS: PARTY GUESTS

Joan and Tom invited their friends over for a belated housewarming. They had moved in last year with their three little girls, all under five and the youngest just two months old. It had been a struggle to get a mortgage for the house but at least they could look forward to a few years stability until the girls grew bigger and needed their own rooms.

Peter, their banker friend from the city, was there with his young son Gary. A custody battle meant that Peter only saw Gary a couple of times a month, and so he was pleased to have some time with his son and watch him careering round the house, enjoying himself with the other children.

Lucy from over the road was in her first year at university doing modern languages, finding city living very different from the farm on which she was brought up. She was talking to Mike. He lived with another man and when people at work found out they made his life such hell with snide comments that he was glad to take voluntary redundancy, though he was now looking for work.

When they came here from France, Jean-Luc and Suzette hoped to start afresh after failed marriages. Things were going well until Jean-Luc’s son, Alex, was arrested for drug possession. Stealing to feed his habit meant it was not long before he was in youth custody.

Bill and Margaret ran the local corner shop and were finding it hard to compete with the newly opened hypermarket. They were there with their middle child, Matt. When Alex went over to chat with Matt, they couldn’t help worrying that where Alex had been, Matt might follow.

No one at the party was normal. Yet they all were. Each was capable of love and each was in need of it.

Today Jesus tells us, “By this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples”.

WORD OF GOD

By this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples. (John 13:35)

WORD FOR TODAY

The love that Jesus showed went to extraordinary lengths, even to the point of death. A Christian’s life ought to reflect this same love. Most of us will not be called on to prove our love by dying, but the distance we are prepared to go is the measure of how much we love like Christ.

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving. (Mother Teresa)

To love means not to impose your own powers on your fellow man but offer him your help. And if he refuses it, to be proud that he can do it on his own strength. (Elizabeth Kubler-Ross)

Ss Philip & James, Apostles. Philip from Bethsaida in Galilee, became a disciple of Jesus and one of the twelve. He is recorded in the fourth gospel as recognising in Jesus the one foretold by Moses and the prophets (John 1:45) and as introducing Gentiles to the Lord. According to Acts 8:5 he was the first to preach the gospel to non-Jews. James, son of Alphaeus, was also one of the twelve called by Jesus (Mark 3:18). Known as James the Less, he has been venerated traditionally as the author of the Letter of James and as leader of the Church in Jerusalem, where he died in the year 62.

4th Sunday of Easter 21st April. 2013

FAITH IN FOCUS: CARING

Today is a day of prayer for vocations, but it’s much more than that. It is about the call God makes to each one of us to care.

There’s an advert on TV which shows an ordinary person washing the feet of an elderly lady. Nothing extraordinary about that. But it goes on to say that if you can do this, you could have a job as a carer.

Strange, isn’t it, that we should need such a thing as institutionalised care? For care is at the heart of the Christian vocation. And in a world where looking after your own interests counts as number one, going out of your way for others is considered an optional oddity. Yet we are called to care for each other like Jesus, the Good Shepherd, cares for us.

You and I are called to be a Good Shepherd and there is no shortage of opportunities, paid and unpaid. Good Shepherds really care about their children, spend time with them and keep supporting them even when they fail. In our schools they are those teachers who are interested in the students more than in their subject, who go that extra mile to bring out the hidden talents of the young people entrusted to them. They are the doctors and nurses in our hospitals who can see beyond the trying circumstances of red tape and bureaucracy to the face of the sick person who stands before them fearful and hurting. Good Shepherds are those countless people in local and national government whose motives spring from a burning desire for the welfare of their communities rather than political fame and fortune. And, of course, there is no shortage of Good Shepherds to be found in those who dedicate their lives as priests or religious for the service of the Gospel.

So Good Shepherd Sunday is not about sheep, grass and mountains. It is about real life. And while Jesus really is the Good Shepherd, his work requires others to follow in his footsteps. Including you and me; if we care.

WORD OF GOD

They will never hunger or thirst again…

because the Lamb who is at the throne

will be their shepherd…

and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:16-17)

WORD FOR TODAY

The image painted by the scriptures is of a God who shepherds us to where the grass is greener, to a life that has an enduring, eternal quality. Our task is to listen out for the shepherds voice.

My religion is simple; my religion is kindness. (Dalai Llama)

When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight. (Michael Bridge)

Our greatest challenge at the beginning of the 21st century is poverty. Our greatest debt is the debt to our brothers and sisters in the poorest parts of the world. Our greatest hope is our common humanity and solidarity. And our greatest strength is our commitment to work together. (Cormac Murphy-O’Connor)

23rd April St George, Martyr. George was martyred at Lydda (Israel) around 303 in the persecution of the emperor Diocletian. His cult, which predates the legend of his slaying the dragon, spread quickly through East and West. During the crusades, George was seen to personify the ideals of Christian chivalry, and was adopted as patron of several city-states and countries.

26th April St Mark, Evangelist. Evangelist and companion of both Peter and Paul. Paul took him, with Barnabus, on his first missionary journey. Peter refers to him as his ‘son’, which accords with the tradition that Mark’s gospel represents the teaching and memoirs of Peter. He is the patron saint of Venice, where his body and relics remain.

3rd Sunday of Easter, 14th.April. 2013

FAITH IN FOCUS: CALL- FALL- RECALL

Peter’s at the heart of today’s gospel story. Jesus has been risen from the dead for some time by now. The disciples seem to have gone back to their old jobs for a while as we meet them up north in Galilee, fishing on the lake.

Given all that went on in Jerusalem you could be forgiven for thinking that Jesus might be better off without them. He’d prepared them for their mission and spent three years getting them ready, teaching them day in and day out. Then when it came to the crunch, as he was facing his trial, they all deserted him. Peter famously denied three times that he even knew him. His northern accent nearly gave him away.

Yet the risen Jesus revisits the old haunts of Galilee, the same place that he had multiplied the loaves and fish. Once again some sort of miracle takes place as the fishermen catch a huge haul of fish, and once more they share a meal on the banks of the lake like they had done on that glorious day with the 5,000 people in the crowd.

Peter, like you and me, had been called by Jesus. He’d been given a mission, to tell the world that God has a plan for living that puts all other ways of life in the shade. To believe in Jesus is to light the blue touch paper. Like you and me Peter was found wanting. He turned his back on Jesus when things got hot and he deserted him for the quiet life, the life that he’d known before meeting Jesus.

What does Jesus do? He simply asks Peter whether or not he loves him. Three times, as many times as Peter had denied him. And when Peter professes his devotion Jesus reinstates him, telling him to feed his sheep, to look after those entrusted to him.

Call, fall and recall: the story of our lives. In our hearts we want to serve the God who has called us, yet we so often fail, giving up when something seemingly more attractive comes along. We’re not evil, just unreliable. Like Peter.

And the supreme way that we are recalled by this risen Lord, who constantly comes to raise us up again, is by eating and drinking with him. Not merely bread and fish, but his risen body and blood.

WORD FOR TODAY

How do we know if we really do love God? Jesus asks Peter three times if he loves him and then tells him to “feed my sheep”. The way we take care of each other, the way we feed God’s sheep, is the benchmark that determines how genuine our love of God is.

It is precisely in our brokenness that we discover our need for God. It is in our weakness that we find we must reach out for one another. It is in our lack of vision that we are forced to search for light. And, as we venture tentatively into our darkness, holding fast to the hope that God has been there before us, we begin to view the immensity of

the love that has been given to us. (Wendy M. Wright)

Perhaps it is no coincidence that the number of fish caught in the net was 153. At the time of Christ it was thought that there were exactly that number of species of fish. The implication is that no one was to be left out of the disciples’ quest as “fishers of men”. (Bede Bradford)

Even the most cursory glance at the post-resurrection appearances of Jesus reveals that most took place in the context of a meal. And is it not fitting, then, that Christians should look for their risen Lord first and foremost in the celebration of his Supper? (Margot Russell)

Easter Sunday 7th.April. 2013

WORD OF GOD

The people were loud in their praise and the numbers of men and women who came to believe in the Lord increased steadily.

(Acts 5:12-13)

WORD FOR TODAY

The early Church grew through the witness of the apostles. Today God calls you and me to be witnesses to the power of the resurrection in our lives. It is through the quality of our relationships with each other that people will come to see that Jesus is risen and active in our world. Every one of us can share in making this a reality.

The church that prays together stays together. Yes, but it must not stop there! The church that stays together decays together.

(Michael Marshall)

All over this magnificent world God calls us to extend his Kingdom of shalom peace and wholeness of justice, of goodness, of compassion, of caring of sharing, of laughter, of joy and of reconciliation. God is transfiguring the world right this very moment because God believes in us and because God loves us.

(Desmond Tutu)

A person who never has doubts about their faith is a person who has never been graced with the gift of trust.

(Renee Berry)

Early notification! Survive-Miva are to make an appeal on 30th June with local girl Teresa Codd (of St Anne’s) coming to remind us about the purposes of the organisation and to seek our support.

FAITH IN FOCUS: SHALOM

After the tumultuous events of Holy Week, Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem and his subsequent trial and execution, where were the disciples? Not out on the streets preaching and teaching, not mounting a campaign to prove the innocence of the dead Jesus, but all huddled together in a rented room with the doors locked.

They were afraid. Perhaps they feared that the guards would come and look for them as they had done for their master. The gospel simply says the doors were locked “for fear of the Jews”.

What Jesus says to them, when like a ghost he appears in the locked room, is “Shalom”. They would have known this to be the usual greeting which people exchanged on meeting. Yet Jesus says to them a second time “Shalom”.

Shalom doesn’t simply mean “peace”. It means that deep-down feeling of health, prosperity, security and freedom. It is a positive thing rather than just the absence of disquiet. Shalom is that unshakeable sensation that we are held in the palm of God’s hand and nothing can ever separate us from him.

When we feel afraid or disquieted it’s a comfort to know that even the disciples found it hard to be calm all the time. When we begin to doubt the substance of our faith, when we become discouraged and think we’re getting nowhere, Jesus has one simple word for us: “Shalom”.

Faith in the risen Lord does not mean that everything becomes rosy, that we wander through life with no problems or concerns. You could argue that the more a person believes, the deeper the questions and doubts that arise. But what it does mean is that we are able to view the same realities from a different perspective, through a different lens. The fact that Jesus is risen from the dead means that we no longer face things alone. We no longer are held in the grip of anxiety and fear. Jesus rose not to abandon us but to be by our side. He is as present to us today as he was in that room with the disciples.

And, whatever our fears are, his presence offers us Shalom.
