St Paul writes of the ‘hidden wisdom of God. This is a wisdom that is far greater than any human wisdom. It is revealed in the scriptures but above all in the person and the words of Jesus. In today’s Gospel he speaks about what lies behind our actions whether they are good or evil. He also speaks with authority: ‘you have heard it said….but I say to you’.
The next session of Journey in Faith is today, Sunday, 16nd February, at 5pm in the presbytery.
At the Sacred Heart – help is urgently needed
As was said last week – Your church needs YOU! We have had a good initial response but we do still need more volunteers. Please take a look at the list of jobs where help is urgently needed to keep our church running. Do please put your name down for the Sacred Heart’s Taskforce. A box for completed forms is in the church porch. Please give whatever time you can to help your church. Thank you.
