Now from Miletus [Paul] sent to Ephesus and called the elders of the church to come to him. And when they came to him, he said to them: “You yourselves know how I lived among you the whole time from the first day that I set foot in Asia, serving the Lord with all humility […]

3rd Sunday of Easter

You’ve all flown. You know the routine. There’s a familiar pattern to checking in, boarding, pre – flight safety, take off, service during flight, landing. I remember the time a new carrier came into the Australian skies – called Virgin Blue.  The fares were cheap and the church counts its pennies so it wasn’t long […]

5th Sunday in Lent

What do you write in a letter from prison? If you’re innocent then perhaps there’s a fair bit of “help me get justice” and if you’re guilty, you’re possibly just pleased that you’ve got someone to write to! Sometimes they get published. Moving along the infamy spectrum you can read prison writings of the Marquis […]

4th Sunday in Lent

Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear [Jesus]. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” So he told them this parable: And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, […]

3rd Sunday in Lent

There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you […]
