Rev Sue Ellis
Pentecost 24 – This sermon, with the theme "Grow, Nurture, Flourish", begins with a discussion of the home as a place of security, love and trust. In the first few books of the Old Testament there are so many rules and instructions governing personal and community life, that anyone trying to follow them conscientiously and religiously must inevitably fail. But in the passage from Mark's gospel, Jesus gives a different interpretation of the Law, emphasising that what was behind it all was God's unconditional love for all of creation. The Kingdom of God is spread by sharing God's love, in an atmosphere of trust and friendship such as might be found in a loving home. God has sent his Holy Spirit to befriend us; so let us grow our relationships, nurture our discipleship, and flourish in our ministry of love.
Mark 12: 28-34
