Jesus is predicting his own death, and then, incredibly, suggesting that he would overcome death and rise again. Peter, leading the outcry tells Jesus that this mustn't happen. Jesus then outlines what for most of us becomes a very difficult challenge. Jesus says quite clearly, that, if you want to be one of his followers then you too must suffer, you too must pick up your cross and follow the pathway that Jesus will set for you.At the heart of this difficult challenge is the cross, which for us so many centuries later can simply mean I CROSSED OUT. Jesus had to make a decision. He could have walked away from what he knew would happen in Jerusalem…

If you can, send FP a picture of your design and next week they will be published. TODAY'S GOSPEL READINGMatthew 15 vv21 - 28This is a disturbing passage as initially it shows Jesus and his disciples being part of a closed community. They are in a Gentile area, maybe hoping not to be bothered, to gather strength away from the crowds. The end of Jesus' earthly ministry is close, miracles and parables have been witnessed the 5,000 have been fed, but now, in this passage Jesus is seen as pushing away someone who…

TOGETHER (Father Peter’s Weekly News Magazine!)

SUNDAY AUGUST 9 2020.               Newsletter 21.  COVID19The ninth Sunday after Trinity.         079 038 079 46 Dear friends throughout the world,How is it for you? REMEMBER, MASKS ARE NOW MANDATORY IN CHURCH (or they were when this was written!!!!!!!). This newsletter comes to you with the assurance of the prayers and best wishes of many people. In the news there are continual reports of a second spike in the transmission of the virus. Remember to STAY SAFE and do all that you can do to keep others safe.  This is a special week for many people as they look back across 75 years and remember when the Second World War finally ended. On August 15 we will remember that the war in the Far East was brought to an end and the world turned its face towards peace.   THIS WEEK'S GOSPEL READING: Matthew 14 vv22 - 33It's a familiar story; a great storm, the disciples in their boat are terrified and in the midst of the danger, Jesus is seen walking on the water. Peter, always ready to get involved, tries to walk towards Jesus who calls for him to come to him. All goes well until the storm whips round Peter, he is afraid and starts to sink. Jesus rescues Peter, they return to the boat and the storm slips away. So what can we learn from this story. In the midst of the pandemic, when we are urged to try to get back to as normal a life as possible, are you afraid? Are you fearful of the virus, fearful for your family, for going back to work and back to how it was before. Are you anxious to do what you can to support, encourage and help others; but you are afraid? Fear is a…
