Love is very much like air. You can’t hold it in your hand. You can only feel it, see it and hear it in action. You feel air as the breeze, you see air in the movement of leaves or you hear air in the sound of wind chimes. In the same way love only becomes real in the way we act with each other. In this community, may our love not be just words but show itself in action.
This year we mark Anzac Day in the shadow of the senseless killing of innocent people in Christchurch, in Sri Lanka and in the many unnamed places throughout the world.
Lent is a journey. As we pass the half-way mark it is timely to check in and to see how we’re going with the commitment we made on Ash Wednesday.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
