Thought for the Week

from Anglican Mothers Union Australia

Sunday August 9th

Mothers Union Family

What a privilege it is to belong to a World-wide family whose mission
is to bring Love and Peace to men, women and children wherever they may be.
The Mothers Union family is a microcosm of the unity between all of creation.
At the halfway point in time from Christ on earth to now,
St Francis spoke of Brother Sun, Sister Moon.
The intensity of his spiritual awareness can be overwhelming.
Let us summon some measure of that feeling of family for other
Mothers Union members so we may truly regard them as our brothers and sisters.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters,
as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every
one of you for one another is increasing.
2 Thessalonians 1: 2-3

A community of other faiths joined the parenting program in Myanmar.
Members were prepared to welcome other believers,
opening their hearts and minds to welcome all of God’s children.
Change came about when faith and love increased.
