Good morning and welcome today.
Our readings today:
Revelation 20: 1 – 4, 11 – 21; 2, Psalm 84: 1 - 6, Luke 21: 29 – 33
In this Gospel Jesus tells his disciples the parable of the fig tree. He describes the natural cycle of trees from spring to winter. As often he uses a metaphor of nature to help us understand his teaching. We know the cycle of the seasons and we understand the changes that occur with each season. So he is telling his disciples that all created things will pass away but his words will never pass away. As we know from our own experience, life can change quickly.
The change may be a positive one. However, change also can be difficult and painful. Jesus reassures us that there is one reality we may always rely on: “ My words and my love will never pass away!” When life is difficult, painful or confusing Jesus is with us. He pours out his love, grace and strength upon us. He will not abandon us! This is important that we remember his words when we are struggling or afraid or feeling alone. Jesus is with us always!
Our Prayer for the week God our Father help us to hear the call of Christ the King and to follow in his service, whose kingdom has no end; for he reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God one glory
Jams and marmalades are available in church at church opening times.
May God bless you and keep you safe
With my love
