Paul and Jesus are on message: in Paul’s words, ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, not condemn them. The readings warn us that the ‘foolishness’ of persisting in ‘doing evil’ and ignoring God’s way of love and doing good can only end in disaster, for individuals and for the local and wider community and for the earth itself.
- Pray that ‘you may fight the good fight, having faith and a good conscience’.
- Give thanks for the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, the Anglican Church of Hong Kong, giving thanks for their work and witness.
