Hosea

The reading from Hosea speaks of a movement from "You are not my people," to "Children of the living God"; and although this movement is described in a primitive Hebraic setting, it resonates with the enlightenment we receive ‘in Christ’.

Likewise the second reading speaks of a movement from “dead in trespasses” to “alive together with God”, and again the movement is described in Paul’s primitive framework of understanding, yet it also resonates with what is revealed ‘in Christ’.

Now when we read the gospel, we might bring to it our more enlightened worldview and see the mystical reality of ‘prayer’ rather than a formula for ‘how to pray’.

And what might we conclude when we contemplate:

For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

Sentence:

Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you

This week's Newletter

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?

Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.

Community Precinct and the Hall

On behalf of the St Paul’s Council and community, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the financial contribution from Lotterywest for the conservation work to our heritage listed community hall. Without this financial support from Lotterywest, we would not have had the capacity to undertake the required conservation work to ensure our facility remains a meeting place for so many different community groups.

St Paul’s is committed to growing community & sharing our facilities with the wider community and greatly appreciates the partnership with Lotterywest to assist us to continue to serve the community

Life-giving God,
with the prayer of Christ always in our hearts and on our lips,
we ask, we seek and we knock at the doorway of the Divine
and in our listening we truly find,
and in our giving we joyfully receive,
and at the door of every life may we know the mercy
that is gift of Divine hospitality,
And together offer each other and all a doorway into
your Divine presence.
Amen

Why come to church?

There are many and varied reasons that bring us here Sunday by Sunday: our personal journey and our innate desire for ‘community’ being just two.
We also enter into a ‘conversation’ that takes us beyond the everyday, a dialogue with and between ourselves and our calling into full humanity. And we come to encounter the Divine as we consume the sacraments, a process that mirrors our desire to be consumed by love’s Divine fire.
