I will declare your righteousness and your salvation every day (Psalm 71:15)
What a weekend! On 28th and 29th April, 30 members of our community gathered in the Catholic Chaplaincy @ Queens to explore the power of the story that the Lord has written in their life! It was a time of sharing the power of how Jesus has transformed our lives, celebrating how this has brought us together, and committing to bearing witness to those in our lives who need this same hope, strength and salvation.
The weekend began by exploring the role of witness that God gave to John the Baptist – who leapt in his mother’s womb on his first encounter with Jesus and pointed to him as the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. Our role as witness is more than story telling. It is a call to make Jesus present in the lives in those who the Holy Spirit puts in our path and who need that same hope that we have received.
Creativity abounded as the group explored the content and method of testimonies and the weekend concluded with a prayer for the strength of the Holy Spirit to be that light among our family members, friends, streets, villages and towns.
