WUC Peace Messages

Peace with earth: A personal response to a Uniting Church Proposal

As part of ‘For the Whole Creation’ proposal …, we affirmed … the need to understand the impacts of climate change on traditional, spiritual and contemporary ways of life, continue to advocate for change and reduce our impact. As a spiritual response, this is what I have come up with: Practice feeling grateful – for blossom, for food, for friends and family and all that enables me to live and love, because that will allow me to say yes to what is life-giving. Respond to injustice – harness the energy of feeling angry and join with others to make a difference, have hope that new life will come out of dark places, as it always has before. Just as the natural world is responding and adapting, I know my response will need to adapt. There is truth in the Christian faith that will carry us through.

Cath James “Seasons of the Soul” in Crosslight Sept. 2018 at  https://crosslight.org.au/2018/08/19/seasons-of-the-soul/


Peace with each other: Something to think about!

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens.
Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes.
It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.

WUC Peace Messages

Peace with earth: A personal response to a Uniting Church Proposal

As part of ‘For the Whole Creation’ proposal …, we affirmed … the need to understand the impacts of climate change on traditional, spiritual and contemporary ways of life, continue to advocate for change and reduce our impact. As a spiritual response, this is what I have come up with: Practice feeling grateful – for blossom, for food, for friends and family and all that enables me to live and love, because that will allow me to say yes to what is life-giving. Respond to injustice – harness the energy of feeling angry and join with others to make a difference, have hope that new life will come out of dark places, as it always has before. Just as the natural world is responding and adapting, I know my response will need to adapt. There is truth in the Christian faith that will carry us through.

Cath James “Seasons of the Soul” in Crosslight Sept. 2018 at  https://crosslight.org.au/2018/08/19/seasons-of-the-soul/


Peace with each other: Something to think about!

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens.
Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes.
It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.
