Bronze Coins, Mark A Hewitt
The widow places all she has 2 small coins for the temple tresurery. These 1 & 2 cent coins are the smallest currency in Australia, so small are their value that they are no longer in circulation. Mark 12:38-44 Pentecost 24 Yr B
Coloured paper squares were poured then mixed in a basket during the call to worship. The more adgile children of God took these pieces of paper and laminated them & cut them into hearts in the middle of the worship space during the service. They were then given to all present in exchange for their prayer for others written on another but larger coloured square. Pentecost 23 Yr B
Cups, pots & kettles ready to be washed. Jesus ministry and teaching was deep and meaningful yet his critics kept with small minded things like the washing of cups, pots and kettles. Things have not changed as we are often caught up dealing with small minded issues when we are dealing with the big questions of life. Mk 7:4.
Mark 7:1-8,14-15, 21-23. Pentecost 14 Yr B
