Sunday 14 March - 10am

Some of the bitterest conflicts in life happen within families. It’s not uncommon to find, for example, two brothers who cannot be in each other’s company for more than a matter of minutes before a fight breaks out. Even at important occasions, such as weddings or funerals, we can feel tension as family members meet each other after years apart, and start up where the conflict last left off.

This week we will be hearing a parable that Jesus told about conflict within a family. As we think through the parable, we will consider how God softens our hearts by freely forgiving us, and welcoming us home. We will consider how God gives us the strength and the desire to be peacemakers in a world marked by conflict.

This week we will meet at 10am for a service with Holy Communion. The Sunday school will meet at about 10:45am.

God bless you,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
