ABM PEW REFLECTIONS: Sunday October 29,2017
Tag team of entrappers – now Pharisees are trying to embroil Jesus in a very contentious debate of the day – which commandment is greatest?  We hear the answer to that question, almost every time we go to Eucharist.  It was then Jesus’ turn to ask them a question and the trapper became the trapped; they could not answer the question.  Time for questions might have ended, but next time they will come by force to trap the Messiah they failed to recognise.

It looks like we have one of the Palm Gospels. Not quite! It includes a few extra verses omitted on Palm Sunday. Reflect on the very last verse of today’s Gospel that the blind and the lame came to Jesus in the Temple and he cured them. Who are the ‘blind’ and the ‘lame’ in your community?  Are they coming to your ‘temple’? Are they invited?

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday October 8, 2017
The Chief Priests and the elders had an inflated sense of self-importance, believing they were the authority; and they had to protect God and the Law. They ended up fighting against the Son of God, who was doing new and unexpected things in their midst.  Those in positions of church leadership, and indeed all of us need to learn from this – lest we fail to follow people we reject, our equivalent of tax collectors and prostitutes, into the Kingdom of God.

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday July 30
Each and every Christian baptised into the Body of Christ shares with Jesus in his kingly, priestly and prophetic nature, called to live out the divine life we share in communion with him.
The prophetic office therefore is not left only to our bishops and priests! Just as Jesus preached in his hometown, so too are we called to share in this ministry, breathing words of prophetic wisdom into our own communities. Jesus shares with his Church the privileged role of calling out injustice, challenging sin and the powers of evil where we see it in ourselves and in our community, and suffering persecution for Truth.

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday July 16
The Gospel readings in the past few weeks have identified for us the vision God has for the growth of His Kingdom.
God in his great abundance sows the seed of faith with seemingly reckless abandon, in poor and rich soil alike.  As members of Christ’s Body we are called to tend these soils, watering them with his life–giving word and nourishing them with the sacraments of grace he gifts to his Church. We all are given gifts to encourage the growth of these seeds, with faith and hope and love. Whether you are skilled in music, or art; singing, or writing; listening, or sharing – we are all gardeners in God’s Kingdom!

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Third Sunday after Pentecost
Jesus shows us that God’s mission is to claim the priority in our lives, even above family loyalty: ‘I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother’, he says. He then goes on to say that our lives can only find their ultimate meaning in him because ‘those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it’. May we never be afraid of dying to self so that we may be born anew, taking our part in the mystery of God’s mission to the world.

NEWS FROM CHRISSA K. – AUSTRALIAN BALLET STAR
Chrissa writes from Sydney: “Rehearsals have been intense, I did my first performance on Wednesday May 3.  What can I say? It was both terrifying and exciting.  Everything went well, thank God, and thank you for your prayers. Taking my curtain call was surreal. On this stage again after 40 years! I love the role and I love performing it. I get very emotional as it also tells my story. Casting for Melbourne has not yet been released but I will let you know as soon as there are more details” – Chrissa.

AN EASTER REFLECTION - Good Friday April 14, 2017
Every so often life brings you a moment so beautiful, so moving, that it brings you to your knees with emotions so overwhelming that you abandon all other.

So, that is what this Good Friday 2017 at Holy Trinity Church Port Melbourne, Stations of the Cross, brought to me.

Here in this simple Church bereft of all decoration, our Pastor Noel, in his simple black cassock, quietly standing facing his small congregation, without pictures or ceremony, lead us along Jesus’ journey that fateful day, with his deeply felt description of each station and the most wonderful poetic response by Christy Kenneally (Irish poet and writer).

I was blessed that day with knowledge of how Jesus walks with me, through my own Stations of the Cross, in my journey called life.

Thank you Noel for the blessing of truly feeling the loving hand of God.

With deep appreciation,   Anne E.

LENTEN STUDIES 2017
A number of parishioners attended the five x weekly sessions.  Not everyone came to every session, but that didn’t matter.
The study group was an interaction of ideas and interpretation as well as fellowship.
We met on a Tuesday night during Lent from 6.30 until 7.30 pm.  We read the Gospel three times over from the week before.  Not three times at once, but the first time we were asked to sum up in a word what the Gospel conveyed to us.
It was fascinating hearing other parishioners’ interpretations and views.  I remember thinking about one comment and saying to myself “I’d never thought of that” and it made me think some more.
The second time we read the Gospel we were asked for a feeling or image that it conveyed.
The third time the Gospel was read I realized that perhaps I hadn’t been listening the first time – or was it combining others’ views and hearing it anew?
This time we were asked what we thought God wanted us to do.  A tough question.
During the meeting, when we diverted from the Gospel, it was nice to learn aspects of the lives of the other participants.
Barbara O led the group well and we thank her for thoughtful sessions and the fellowship that went with it.

LENT
Lent is a penitential season in preparation for Easter. The order of the Eucharist  is changed in Lent - there are no Alleluias, the Gloria is not said or sung and instead the Trisagion on Page 121 is said. The Preparation, the Words of Scripture, the Prayer of Approach, the Confession and Absolution are all said in the centre of the Eucharistic liturgy.  The Second Sentence is said where there is an option, and the Anthems and Invitation to Communion on Page 146 are used. There are no flowers in Lent and the liturgical colour is blue or purple.  Lent is a more meditative and reflective season of the church year and the liturgy tries to encourage this sense of reflection.

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday February 19, 2017
In the Epistle reading, Paul is charging the Church in Corinth to ensure that they build on the one and only foundation, Jesus Christ (v. 11). In building on the very foundation, care must be exercised by all means. The Church is invited to continue firming her commitment to the very foundation. In the contemporary society, the context from where we operate in proclaiming the gospel, there are so many things that include but are not limited to: secularism, materialism, atheism etc, that seek to shake and if possible replace the very foundation. God forbid!
‘Therefore, brothers and sisters, let us work out our salvation with fear and trembling.’  (Philippians 2:12)

         ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday February 12, 2017
In the Epistle reading, St Paul is creating an environment to correct what is normally known as ‘sibling rivalry.’ Paul equates his ministry with the ministry of Apollos and affirms to the Corinthians that Apollos and Paul were both servants of the Living God and there was no need for the Church to be divided along those lines of one group liking Paul and another liking Apollos. The ministry is one and the owner of the very ministry is none other than God himself. Why are there so many divisions in the Church nowadays? God is calling the Church to heal the wounds and unite people by planting the seed of love.

WELCOME
A warm welcome to the Reverend Andrew Davis, recently retired as Vicar of Christ the Saviour Parish Church, Ealing Broadway, London.  Andrew is visiting from England and recovering from a serous accident.  He has been on our prayer list for a considerable time.

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday February 5, 2017
In the Epistle reading, we see the power of humility. In humility, we reach all people and we can warm their hearts with the good news. St. Paul shows that in his weakness, fear and trembling (verse 3), God connected his spirit with the spirits of the Corinthians. There is power in enriching our emotional connection for in that our hearts will be weaved together for the sake of the gospel.
Pray that God will give us grace to humble ourselves as we bring the good news to the people. Pray that God will give us a new heart and put a new spirit in us; that he may remove from us the heart of stone and give us a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36.26).

ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday January 22
In the Gospel reading we get to appreciate the fact that Jesus takes the early warning so seriously that when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. His ministry focus was changed to fit the context he was operating from and his focus now was on repentance. From that time Jesus began to proclaim, ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven has come near’ (v. 17). Without changing the gospel message, we need to be sensitive to the context from which we operate as we present the gospel. Jesus started recruiting his disciples for he was preparing for succession and continuity. What is happening around us? What message do we need to present for this generation?
