Pentecst 13 – Season of Creation: Weaving Community – Choosing and following God's life is difficult and costly; it does not guarantee health, wealth and happiness, but the gifts of God's life are the wisdom, resources and capacity that lead into a fulness of life. In the world today, the cost of doing right is so high – how do we do it, in the face of markets driven by shareholder expectations for profit, fickle voters, special interest pressure groups, and increasingly polarised political systems? It is suggested that it comes down to small details in the lives of Christians and faith communities – to risk being counter-cultural for the sake of the world, but not at the risk of losing autheticity, freedom and power.
Luke 14: 25-33
