Here is the Faithful Friday word for you today!
Faithful Friday is an initiative from our clergy to further explore the Word of God and to reconnect people with Bible verses
Please feel free to reflect on what each passage means to you and let us know if any of the passages inspire you.
Blog post by David Hildred:
Our readings take us into the final week of the life of Jesus, and in his interaction with those who opposed him he gives as good as he gets. The chief priests knew that he had spoken a particular parable against them, and so they send spies in order to try to catch him out. He graciously sees through them, answers their question and offers them a better way forward. Whatever state of mind or heart we are in when we approach Jesus we can be assured of being met with the same grace. The answer he offers us might not be the one we were wanting, but we can be certain that he will always lead us to a better place. This last week of his life leads to the cross: the place of the ultimate offer of a better way forward.
