Glimpses of God

Our world is often overshadowed by chaos and uncertainty and we long for moments of reassurance and divine presence. In his message today, Canon Rob helps us explore the theme of ‘Glimpses of God,’ reflecting on the story of the Transfiguration from Mark 9:2-9 and the significance of encountering God’s glory amidst life’s challenges.

Anticipation and Hope Rewarded

Drawing inspiration from the presentation of the infant Jesus in the temple, we reflect on Simeon’s eager anticipation and Anna’s unwavering devotion, envisioning their stories as mirrors to our own quest for renewal. Canon Rob Park encourages us to carry the transformative power of Christ’s birth into our lives, actively seeking hope and restoration amidst the uncertainties of our world.

Understanding the Cost of Following Jesus

Canon Rob Park offers prayers, and a short reflection based on the Gospel reading, Matthew 16:13-20. A critical question posed by Jesus in Matthew 16:26, asks what it profits someone to gain the world but lose their life and it encourages us to reflect on whether our life’s purpose is centred around earthly ambitions or heavenly aspirations.

Listening and Responding
