Thought for the Week

from Anglican Mothers Union Australia

September 19th

Peace and Security

Fear may be the most crippling experience of all.
Certainly the gospels are continually advocating
the importance of trust in the wake of fearful times ahead.
In John, chapters 13-15, Jesus prepares his friends for the Way.
It is the Way of Trust and Love, of the New Commandment.
He does not promise peace without conflict, nor security without attack.
What he does promise is His peace which passes all understanding.
We live in world of sin and death but we Trust and Love and are saved,
not from the results of sin and death but from the fear of their destructive power.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled,
and do not let them be afraid.
John 14:27

In the diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Mother Union
members raise awareness of social issues in the UK and worldwide.
By acknowledging the need to support prisoners and their families,
members focus more on plight of others
than on their own fear and so grow in Trust and Love.
