Last time we met we had Valerie talk to us about the importance of confession🙏🏼
This week we will finish our made series along with the four marks of the Church⛪️
"Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:14-16)
Visited one of the townships with Uthando to learn about social and economic development projects led by the people living there. They gave us this lovely book with stories of some of the elders we met. #uthandosa#reconciliation
Only by the righteousness of Jesus Christ are we able to be right with God the Farher. It's not by our Own Works... We can be a "good" person in our own eyes an do what's right, but we still are cursed with sin. Jesus's sacrifice, His blood Purifies us an Reconciles us in a Relationship back to the Father. So Without Jesus We cannot see the Father. We Cannot Enter God's Kidngdom. You and Jesus got to be homies ! I can't be in a relationship and not give myself wholeheartedly.. I can't be unfaithful, I can't be Unloyal because how is that even a Relationship?? It's not... God loves us and wants us to be with him, but we also have to want the same.. Who wouldn't want to live in a place where there is no more pain no more suffering no more evil? Where you'll have all that you Need and Ever Desired? It sounds like a Fantasy too good to be true, but God is good! 🤗😊😂! And He is Real ! And all of this is Promised to those who Choose Him! God Keeps His Promises be Sure of that! .
22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. 24 Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. 25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, 26 for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
CONSIDER NOT THE OUTER APPEARANCES.
...for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
When I was in junior high I had a classmate who was very defensive, always angry, very combative and had some serious emotional issues. To the point that when someone would look at him, he would lash out with the words-..."what are you looking at"?
Question, what are you looking at? Who have you pre-judged, dismissed, counted unqualified, unworthy, while on the other hand labeling another popular, skilled, equipped and the perfect match, candidate or perhaps just the right person(s)..businessman/woman or association, club and group to link up with, based on outward, superficial calculations?
What about their fruit...character...integrity...heart...?
Often people could portray and project that they are okay outwardly, but inward turmoil, torture and deep-seated issues are their daily demons. Be nice, sensitive, caring & loving, forgiving, honest and spirit-led to often just give people a second-chance.

Woliwon, @sdouglas06 sdouglas06 for you post. You go girl!!✊🏽
“These past few days have really left me feeling truly satisfied with my career and where it has taken me. Today our school division raised the Treaty Four flag, and tomorrow Vanier will have official ceremony for ours as well. My students and myself participated in a school board meeting adopting the policy of recognizing the land we live on to be Treaty 4 territory, the home of the Cree, Saulteux, Nakota, Lakota, and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Métis. I’m so fortunate to work in an area that allows me to follow my passions, and supports reconciliation for all. In honour of this day I chose to wear all my favourite Indigenous entrepreneurs goods... earrings @ms_savagerose, necklace @mad_aunty_, make up from @cheekbonebeauty, orange shirt pin from @bearbeadwork and She Warrior shirt from @shenativegoods #reconciliation ”
Intentionally or unintentionally, people will hurt you. Your healing will not come with time, you will only find healing if you choose to pursue it.
To heal you must choose forgiveness.
Forgiving your persecutors and wrong-doers allows Jesus to set your heart free from bitterness and hurt, and in turn also allows Jesus to extend redemptive grace toward them.
Choosing to forgive means trusting Jesus to be your healing, trusting that He is your vindication, trusting that He is reconciliation.
It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
Today's Gospel Reading:⠀
Luke 11: 37-41⠀
After Jesus had spoken,⠀
a Pharisee invited him to dine at his home.⠀
He entered and reclined at table to eat.⠀
The Pharisee was amazed to see⠀
that he did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal.⠀
The Lord said to him, "Oh you Pharisees!⠀
Although you cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish,⠀
inside you are filled with plunder and evil.⠀
Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside?⠀
But as to what is within, give alms,⠀
and behold, everything will be clean for you."⠀
What needs to be cleansed for you on the inside? Perhaps it's time to make an appointment for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. ⠀
TUESDAY OCTOBER 16: You may need to forgive something or someone from the past—starting with yourself. Currently, there is a powerful opportunity for deep emotional healing to occur, particularly if you’re willing to face deeper layers of old issues that you hold around self worth. If you can get quiet enough to recognize outdated thought patterns and reconcile the grievances connected to them, you will realize that the only thing that is holding you back is your own belief in how far you will go. MEDIATION: What might reconciliation feel like? If I can’t forgive the past, would it be enough to just move forward with the feeling of reconciliation? #thisissovereignty ✨ 📷: @yuta_404 via @somewheremagazine

Parry Agius our Community Relationship Officer along with the Grannies Group will explore:
Indigenous inclusion- Reconciliation Action Plans and the opportunity they present in partnerships.
Together they will discuss with you growing up on a Mission and how this influenced their lives. Discover how this experience and the relationships formed over time build strong communities and ongoing engagement.
Parry and the Grannies are an example of how encouraging active participation, developing a living RAP and ensuring there is an understanding of the Reconciliation process builds a future where the community comes together.
We were happy to take part in the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division board meeting today. Our school division now proudly flies the Treaty 4 flag, and it is in policy that we recognize this territory when we begin gatherings. We are all walking the path of #reconciliation together!
What do you think of when I say “Aboriginal land”? Do you think of the Central Desert? Perhaps Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory?
Every square inch of the Australian continent has been nourished and looked after by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander caretakers for tens of thousands of years. And the suburbs of the Bushland Shire are no different.
I’m excited to find out more about Hornsby Area Residents for #Reconciliation at their public meeting on Saturday. It's a chance to hear from member Mariko Smith and historian Michael Bennett.
Hit me up for details.

This beautiful painting by Maria Makki is titled "Kiss of forgiveness". According to the artist the "indigo window symbolises a metaphorical window into their minds, one which represents a desire for union and peace and which is always present even during the fiercest moments of a conflict." Forgiveness is a process (or the result of a process) that involves a change in emotion and attitude regarding an offender. It is an intentional and voluntary process, driven by a deliberate decision to forgive. Forgiveness is not the same as condoning, excusing, pardoning or forgetting.
Some theorists view reconciliation, or the restoration of a relationship, as an integral part of the forgiveness process. Others view forgiveness and reconciliation as independent processes, as forgiveness can occur in the absence of reconciliation and reconciliation may occur without forgiveness. Reductions in revenge and avoidance motivations and an increased ability to wish the offender well are features of forgiveness that can impact upon behavioural intention without obliging reconciliation. Forgiveness can be a one sided process, whereas reconciliation is a mutual process of increasing acceptance.
Benefits of Forgiveness: aids psychological healing through positive changes in mood; improves physical and mental health; restores a victim’s sense of personal power; helps bring about reconciliation between the offended and offender and promotes hope for the resolution of real-world intergroup conflicts.
