Sunday, 19th February 2023 - Part 2 - Wonderers, worshippers and witnesses’
Reading: Matthew 17. 1 – 9 (The Message)Short talk: ‘wonderers, worshippers and witnesses’ The topic of reflection is the story of the three disciples who went up  the mountain with Jesus and witnessed the splendor of God. A reflection on four words related to the story of Jesus and his  disciples on the mountain: wonder, worship, witness, and work. Wonder: Take a step back and wonder at the mysteries of God's presence,  creation, and scripture during the season of Lent. Worship: The disciples' worship involved listening to Jesus, listen  deeply to Jesus in scripture as the heart of worship. Witness: Witness to the reality of Jesus with humility and through both  words and actions. Work: The disciples were invited to be part of the work of Jesus, we  should pray for and participate in God's work in the world today.  The disciples' experience on the mountain was a revelation of divine  light that they could not put into words. The disciples' response was to worship, but they had a lot to learn  about true worship, which involves following and listening to Jesus. Listening to Jesus is at the heart of worship and is an essential aspect  of our tradition. After wandering, worshiping, and listening, we are called to be  witnesses of Jesus, but our witness can be mistaken if we fail to  witness to the reality of Jesus. Witnessing requires humility and a deep understanding of the love of  God. We are encouraged to pray for God's work in the world and for our part  in it.

Bible reading: Isaiah 60 Verses 1-6Bible Reading: Matthew 2: 1-12Epiphany Prayer of Confession Loving God, you guided the wise men to Bethlehem, offering a light for their path, and in faith they responded. Forgive us that all too often we fall short of their example. Gracious Lord, have mercy. You offer us guidance in innumerable ways – through the light of your word, the illumination of your Holy Spirit, the fellowship of your church, and the encounter of prayer, yet so often we either fail to hear or refuse to see. Gracious Lord, have mercy. We are too preoccupied with our own small affairs, eyes only for the immediate moment, our vision impeded by trivial concerns, so we fail to recognise where you are leading us, Gracious Lord, have mercy. We believe we know just where we are going, just what we want from life, and exactly how we can get it, and we resist any suggestion that we need to think again. Gracious Lord, have mercy. Loving God, forgive us our foolishness, our stubbornness, our weakness. Gracious Lord, have mercy. Forgive our pride, our lack of faith, our closed minds. Gracious Lord, have mercy. Forgive us for ignoring your guidance, for resting your will, and as a result so often walking in darkness. Gracious Lord, have mercy. Meet with us again we ask, and may the light of your love shine in our hearts, so that we cannot but see it or fail to respond in grateful praise and joyful service. Gracious Lord, have mercy, in the name of Christ .Amen
