Thoughts – 7 November 2021

Readings: Psalm 146 and Mark 12:38-44

With a close read, we notice how these beloved Biblical figures were failed by systems that should have sustained them. But for those who are failed by humans, God intervenes, offering them back the pleasure of life they
always deserved. The Divine is made manifest in full stomachs, security, and broken chains!

May we discover a deep, practical, generous, and compassionate trust in God as we worship this week.
