May peace be with all of you who belong to Christ.
Peter’s letter today speaks of how to be in community: how to lead with humility; how to be an example to others by the way in which we live our lives; how to stand in solidarity with others; how to surrender and trust in our God.
None of these things is easy, or even comes naturally.
Are we aware when we are acting from ego and self interest? How does this feel different from when we are surrendering to and trusting in our God?
In our prayer today let us spend some time surrendering to and trusting God. As Edwina Gateley so beautifully encourages us: ‘Just be exactly where you are - it is where you are meant to be. Rejoice in it.’
