8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

This page contains two videos:- The first, posted just hours before Christchurch’s devastating earthquake on in 2011, focusses on the Gospel reading and its implications for Christian mission. The second, posted three days later in response to the catastrophe, is offered as an expression of prayerful solidarity with the people of the city from which I come, including a meditation on Psalm 131.
