Spirit & Life

Only with the Light are shadows fully revealed

Only with the Light are shadows fully revealed

Paul’s metaphors are as relevant and fresh today as they were to the Thessalonians. This year holds shadows of catastrophic disasters – in fires and storms; as species disappear forever; between neighbouring countries; from relentless political greed; where power gobbles that which is not its own; amid the silent stealth and aberration of pandemic; engraved in the faces of displaced, distraught victims of other’s cruelty; through the fragile cracking of ‘steadfast’ democracy – reality’s shadows have brought life-changing suffering and grief. Darkness has been unexpectedly birthed, with terrible pain.

Part of the work of the church is to teach us to listen in a world that only wants to speak. We learn to listen, not just for information; but also for discernment, sifting through the questions of life. We learn to listen, not to react quickly to every dilemma, but to respond thoughtfully and prayerfully. We learn to listen not only to speak, but so we can speak truthfully, kindly, and compassionately.

Together, with Intentional Ministry

A “Don’t worry. Be Happy” interpretation of this passage completely misses its significant message. Paul is not calling us, as God’s people, to be dismissive at all! Rather, together, purposely leave with God the very human perspective of anxieties, suspicions and apprehensions, and instead, take on the Way of Christ and together, live well, safe in union with Jesus.

Wishing you were there, rather than living when you are here!

Wishing you were there, rather than living when you are here!

The whole congregation of the Israelites complained against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness. The Israelites said to them, “If only we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate our fill of bread; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
