The Love

The biblical reflection for today comes from I John 4:18: There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
According to the verse, what is the source of that person’s fear? What is the single thing that frightens them? They fear being "punished". Why is this one person afraid he or she will be punished? Again, the verse tells us the answer. The person knows punishment is coming because they are "not perfected in love."


Ministry at the time of Coronavirus (Covid 19): Prevent, cure and accompany

Now we have to shape what some have started calling; The Church at Home. Although I keep asking myself; What do those who do not have a home do? For this reason, at the same time, I am declaring today in our Holyrood Church a Lenten day of prayer, fasting and reading the Bible in the Time of the Coronavirus.
