We hear from St Luke (Acts 2.1-21) of the ‘Birth of the Church’ where the Holy Spirit descends on the believers who then speak in many of the languages of the then-known world. Today we have many people living in Australia who speak languages other than English, our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and those from overseas who have chosen to call Australia home. At this time of crisis, how can we ensure that all the people living in the country know God’s love?
- Pray that this week – and in all others – we might be able to befriend someone from a new culture and show them God’s love through our love for them.
- Give thanks for the work of those who translate the Scriptures into languages that have not yet had a version of the Bible.
