Thought for the Week

from Anglican Mothers Union Australia

Sunday 23rd January 2022

Mothers Union Worldwide

Jesus bids us shine,
You in your small corner,
and I in mine.

From the beginning of his ministry Jesus reached out into the corners of his world:
into the mire of political double dealing with Matthew the tax collector,
to those excluded by religious and racial bigotry – the sick and maimed, the Canaanite ‘dogs’.
They were struggling to survive in their small corner
and Jesus opened a way of life that makes ALL things new.
For Christ each small corner is a beacon of community love, for we are the Body of Christ.

And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.”
Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Revelation 21:5

We pray this week for the Anglican diocese of False Bay, South Africa. Its bishop is Margaret Vertue,
the second woman to be elected as a bishop of the
Anglican Church of Southern Africa and of the whole African continent.
Margaret was educated at the Convent of the Holy Family in Kimberley
and studied at St Paul’s Theological College, Grahamstown (now the College of the Transfiguration),
at Stellenbosch University and at St Beuno’s, North Wales.
She was ordained as one of the first woman priests by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in September 1992,
elected bishop on 3 October 2012 and consecrated on 19 January 2013
by the Most Reverend Thabo Makgoba, Archbishop of Cape Town.
