All gifts please should be new and unwrapped so that practitioners can select the most appropriate presents for their caseload children.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK. This week, in our morning prayer readings, we came to John's description of Jesus' betrayal and arrest... Jesus said to Peter, 'Put your sword back into its sheath' (John 18:11). Christ reveals a way of vulnerable, suffering love when confronted with power and violence. His love disarms. There is no easy or glib way to follow such a way of love. In a world torn apart by the power of the sword it is worth spending time praying and contemplating how we can all, in our lives, answer Christ's invitation to a different path.
