And as we engage in the particular lives of those around us, especially those lonely, vulnerable and in need, we are participating with Jesus in setting the table for the whole world.
The Jesus who died for our healing on a cross is not a God of easy solutions. A film won’t make the injustice that this country has shown to Aboriginal people go away. Remembering Liam and his life won’t make the pain and grief suddenly disappear. Praying won’t ensure that your life is great because God is ‘looking out for you’. However, God is there in all of it and it is beautiful.
