A New Generation


THERE’S a song that we sing in our gatherings and the first two a lines of the first stanza goes like this:

“There’s a new generation that is seeking Your face

There’s a new generation that is taking their place…”

Pressing on with Mission


OUR community’s theme for the year “Forward in Christ” taken from Philippians 3:13-14 coincides with the Catholic Church’s current celebration of the Pauline year. St. Paul exhorted the faithful to “imitate me as I imitate Christ” (1 Cor.11:1). In effect he expressed in very clear terms how we are directed to emulate his posture in relating to Christ and thus make it our life’s goal. In so stating, we are urged to draw inspiration from the very life of Paul and learn from the examples in his life as lessons that we can apply today.
