Reflections 26 May 2019

ABM

Justice: Today we find Jesus healing on the Sabbath – completely scandalous to anyone following the Mosaic Law. Nonetheless we can see in this an act of justice where a paralysed man was cured and Christ could say to him ‘Stand up, take your mat and walk’. How can our parishes bring justice to those who need it?

Pray that we might see out injustices and work to find creative and innovative ways to solve them. May we not be like the proverbial ostrich with a head stuck in the sand.

Give thanks for the Church of the Province of Central Africa, remembering especially the work of the Zambia Anglican Council.
