Sunday 7 March - 9am

When we see or hear that disaster has struck other people, we can sometimes wonder if they have somehow deserved it. Even if young children are caught up in a disaster, we can still be tempted to think that they are suffering because they belong to a community that is blameworthy in some way.

This week we will be hearing a reading from the Bible that deals with the way we interpret the suffering of others. As we listen to Jesus’ teaching, we will consider how God is calling us not to judge others, but to turn away from our own wrong actions. We will also consider how we can place our trust in God’s forgiveness, and so have the strength to be merciful when others suffer.

This Sunday we will meet at 9am for a service with Holy Communion. The Sunday school will meet at about 9:45am.

God’s blessings to you,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
