23rd April 2021 - Perseverance
Life is a marathon not a sprint. I’ve a friend who, as a child, wondered why adults always walked. In contrast she joyfully ran everywhere and promised herself she’d continue running once an adult. Sadly the ageing process had its way, and childhood pledges made way for adult realities.
22nd April 2021 - Being Christian
The earliest Christian writings emphasise human behaviour. Ignatius of Antioch writes, ‘It is right, therefore, that we not just be called Christians, but that we actually be Christians’. worthy of the Lord, our daily challenge.
21st April 2021 - Hope
Here in St Cuthbert’s Oratory, a home of prayer, our three watchwords are hospitality, hope and healing – three gospel gifts we receive. God’s hospitality welcomes us to our salvation banquet. What’s more, He promised to feed us with bread for both stomach and spirit.
20th April 2021 - Faith and Love
In reading the few surviving Christian texts from the second century, I’m struck by the importance of two small words: faith and love. St Ignatius of Antioch related them to the Eucharist and they were associated with the disciple’s way of life.
19th April 2021 - Christian Maturity
We have taken a week exploring Spiritual Formation, or how to grow up into maturity in Christ. It is the goal of every follower of Jesus to become more like him and to pray the words of St. Richard of Chichester daily, ‘My Lord Jesus Christ, may I know you more clearly, love you more dearly and follow you more nearly, day by day’.
18th April 2021 - Christ is All
If ever life overwhelms me I stop to consider those Christians who have gone before me. It was the great Christian survivor of the Ravensbruck concentration camp, who said, ‘Today I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work he will give us to do.’
