Saturday 21 October
A God’s eye view of the world
‘Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind’ (Job 38:1)
We are all familiar with the story of the book of Job. Job is a person who loves God and does what is right in God’s eyes. But he is stricken with a terrible series of troubles. His wealth is dissipated. His family is shattered. His health is destroyed. He sits for days with three friends. They talk, weep and rage about the situation. And what God is and isn’t doing about it. Then after 37 chapters of silence, God finally speaks to Job from the centre of a cyclone. What follows is the longest uninterrupted speech by God in the entire Bible. God gives Job a ‘whirlwind’ tour of the Earth as God sees it. A real eye-opener. Here is a God’s eye view of the world.
A bird’s eye view of God
‘Look at the birds of the air’ (Matthew 6:26)
In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus asks us to look at the world about us in order to come to a deeper understanding of God. God comes to us through the world that God has made. ‘Look at the birds of the air,’ Jesus says. And ‘consider the lilies of the field’ (Matt. 6:26, 28). But what is this bird’s eye and lily eye view of God? Can these created beings really become our spiritual teachers? Can we as believers learn from them in these troubled times? This session will be very practical, not just a talk fest! We will explore what it means to pray and minister in and with the world understood as God’s living and speaking creation.
Sunday 22 October - 8am and 10am Worship
A disciple’s eye view of Jesus
‘They saw him walking on the sea’ (Mark 6:49)
Sunday worship at the Cathedral will continue with the theme for the weekend, ‘The Earth is the Lord’s.’ There will be echoes of the previous session in the worship, but if you haven’t been able to get to it, no matter. The worship will not presuppose it. The scripture focus will be the story of Jesus walking on the stormy water of Lake Galilee. What did the disciples experience when they saw Jesus coming towards them across the waves? What does this say about Jesus and God’s Earth? And what does it mean for our own faith in Jesus Christ?
