 This week we pray for

And what does GOD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?

- Micah (Micah 6:8)


Australians expected to spend more than $30 billion for Christmas

I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives doing things they detest, to make money they don't want, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't like. (Elile Gauvreau)

Micah Challenge
The Micah Challenge for this week:
At the end of their recent summit, the G20 Leaders issued a communique in which they claimed to be resolute in their commitment to : - raising global growth to deliver better living standards and quality jobs - supporting strong and effective action to address climate change - supporting an urgent coordinated international response to the West African Ebola crisis. And the United States and China reached an historic agreement on emissions targets. We could dismiss all this as mere words, the easy utterances of the rich and powerful. Or we could embrace it and commit ourselves to nurturing the seeds of hope it contains.

Jesus said; Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Matt 11: 28-30 The Message
