BenevoLent: Hope wins
Over Lent we’re offering weekly suggestions for prayer, action and reflection on the gospel passages. This week we’re reflecting on Mark 15.1-39, (40-47) and the promise of new life:
"Now when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way [Jesus] breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was God’s Son!”
The challenge of forgiveness
In the end, a legalistic response to young people who do us harm will always be inadequate.
Righteousness and equity
The characterisation of people living in poverty as lazy is deeply unbiblical.
Crying out for justice
The third week of Advent focuses on John the Baptist, whose message of repentance may be as hard for us to hear today as it was for his first listeners.
