Today our service is led by Ian Bertram.
We read and think about the feeding of the 5000 men
And if so, what sort of miracle? A conjuring trick, or a miracle of sharing and compassion
Why are you reading this text, going to this website, watching this service. Let me suggest that it’s partly at least because at some time in your life you felt the warmth of a relationship beyond yourself- deeply intimate and beyond words.
Try as best you can to re-enter that moment in time, not to understand it or rationalise it, but rather to just feel it and re-experience it.
For those in Victoria and other parts of the world struggling to lower COVID-19 numbers.
For those struggling with these times of social isolation.
Commit yourself this week to spend at least a few minutes with the tv off and the mobile in another room. Sit quietly and let your mind switch off for a short while. Call it meditation, call it relaxation, call it whatever you want.
