Teach me

Life Students,

This week, Peter asks Jesus, “When a sibling wrongs me, how many times must I forgive? Seven times?” Jesus gives him – and us – the answer: “Seventy times seven.”

Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. A tall order.

We human beings rub up against each other. And that friction can cause hard feelings. Jesus tells us, “The truth is, whatever you declare bound on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you declare loosed on earth will be loosed in heaven.” In other words, work it out or carry it with you. Another tall order.

Forgiveness does not mean forgetting. Forgetting can lead to repeating. What relationships in your life have derailed and need to be put back on track – reconciled and repaired? What do you need to let go of so that your vibration is harmonious in a discordant world?

Let’s have a look as we continue riding the rails of faith with Peter this Fifth Sunday in Lent at 10 am on 1130 Balclutha, Zoom, or Livestream. Maybe we can learn something. Extend an invitation.

Learning alongside you,
Rev. Michael Cronin
