Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 10-MAR-2010 - 9.30 AM Early Word and Sermon
Trish Brice and Revd Dr Greg Elsdon
Lent 1 – "Balance for Better" – This service celebrated the 125th Anniversary of the granting of voting rights for women by the Parliament of South Australia, and Trish describes in some detail the activities of seven remarkably courageous women at the heart of the Women's Suffrage movement. They had strong church backgrounds, generally from the Methodist tradition, and they worked unceasingly towards social justice for women and girls forced to live and work in appalling conditions. In the short sermon following the Early Word we are reminded that all of us, like Jesus, are beloved of God, and that like Jesus, we too will be confronted by temptations and difficult moral and ethical decisions. Lent is a period set aside for contemplating such things..
Luke 4: 1-13
