Jesus Wept (When Faith and Pain Collide)
How much time, energy and effort do we spend trying to convince the world that we have it all together? We are all exposed to the reality of pain in a broken world, it can tear us apart, but what we do with that pain demonstrates who we believe God to be. Two of the most powerful words in the Bible are the from its shortest verse, “Jesus wept,” because when we weep, we can be reminded that Jesus wept too. In his tears, Jesus did not demonstrate a weakness of his humanity, but the strength of God’s character.
Bring your pain to Jesus, that he might turn something broken into something beautiful.
Australians Together (Seek Understanding)
Sometimes our response to matters of injustice must be counter-intuitive. When it comes to Australia’s history and treatment of our indigenous brothers and sisters this is most definitely the case. Ignorance is unacceptable, being informed only takes us so far – but to seek understanding, is to live reconciliation.
