Trinity 19 2020
from the Iona Prayer Circle
In these strange times where touch is denied,
and smiles are hidden,
may we know your touch on our lives.
May your healing and peace renew us body mind and spirit,
keeping a deep smile in our hearts.
Something to think about
Confronting the needs of others brings out various attitudes in us.
Jesus used the story of the Good Samaritan to make clear what attitudes are acceptable to Him.
Here is a collection of attitudes from that story –
To the expert in religious law – the wounded man was a subject to discuss.
To the bandits – the wounded man was someone to use and exploit.
To the religious men – the wounded man was a problem to be avoided.
To the innkeeper – the wounded man was a customer to serve for a fee.
To the Samaritan – the wounded man was a human being worth being cared for and loved.
To Jesus – all of them and all of us are worth dying for!
