In this morning’s sermon at 11am Mass Mtr Kim reflected on a lecture on encouraging well being she had recently heard, and invited us all to consider how the five principles would also apply to church life and spiritual well being.
Here is a summary of the sermon:
“As we nurture our Christian lives, let’s also challenge ourselves to stay healthy:
Let’s connect, be together, spend time with, and for, one another.
Let’s be active – get out there like the disciples and make a difference, in whatever way we can, thorough our work, our volunteering, our church and local communities.
Let’s take notice and celebrate what is good in this time, this place, and be thankful.
Let’s keep learning, be prepared to take on new, maybe even unexpected roles, as Jesus’ disciples did. To give new things a go. Maybe join in something for the first time, ask Fr Ian if there’s something you can do in our worship, in our community, our locality – or make your own suggestion!
And finally let’s remember to give. To live our lives in an outward looking way – certain that when we offer ourselves to others in whatever way, we will receive back more than we might ever expect.”
