Rev Sandy Boyce
Pentecost 15 – Today in Australia we are faced with the contentious issue of whether our Parliament should be asked to legalise Same Sex Marriage; and in the first century the Christian community in Rome was being torn apart by the contentious issue of whether it was safe to eat meat that had been ritually slaughtered in pagan temples. When he wrote to the Roman church, Paul included some advice for dealing with contentious issues. – We need to deal humbly with one another, to listen and work to understand the other's perspective. We must not be arrogant, disrepectful and unyielding. Diverse practices can flourish side by side; and conflicts need to be resolved, in the process of forgiveness. Such is the way of Christ.
Romans 14: 1-12
