12th Sunday in Ordinary Time Cycle A 2023 (’08)

Sunday 25 June 2023 (’08): 12thSUNinORDINARY : A

1. JER20:10-13!

Anyone in my local church suffering from ‘Slings&Arrows’ similar to Jeremiah’s? If more of us were seeped in TheProphets, &TheJesusStories, we’d recognise similarities!

2. PS68:8-10, 14, 17, 33-35!

Would knowledge of these ancient ‘agony-prayers’ help any of us? Is my local church sufficiently interested to search-out, &assuage, the many suffering disparagement?

3. ROM5:12-15!

Paul on ‘TheOrigins-of-Sin&Death’, a mix of certainty&vagueness! Perhaps his understanding, of what is called ‘Sin’&’Death’ is different? &What am I doing about it?

4. MT10:26-33!

Even as a ChristDisciple, which 3PrincipalFears are still Infecting-MyLifeMinistry?

Again, as a ChristDisciple, which 3PrincipalAntidotes-to-Fear have I found&applied?


TheUnacknowledgedPrevalence-of-Intimidations in my local church, so-what?

* ‘Listen! Lave all that til Th’ Guards, or Th’ Vigilantes!’

* God, if we only realised that it’s actually JesusHimself is Suffering-TheDepredations!

* Did TheTemple not turn a blind eye to much suffering&distress all-over?
