Pastoral letter 20th March 2020

Greetings all.

I write to you, as the Minister of the Word for the Armadale congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia. I write to regular members and perhaps those who have simply chanced on the website looking for something, some word, some thought.

Part of my job is to remind people – re-mind them – of an alternative way to view life – and death and everything in between. And I do that – as do my colleagues and the members of the Armadale congregation - with reference to a library of sacred books handed down through millennia – the Bible: a library of histories, soap opera, prophetic pronouncement; of extraordinary, flawed yet mighty, characters; of poetry, letters/correspondence, gathered wisdom, Gospels.

From the first book (Genesis) to the last book (Revelation), the Bible, with confronting honesty, tells us that a life of faith does not take away what is difficult, but rather offers a particular way of dealing with difficulty, acts as a sign to live into and through difficulty differently.

There is nothing more difficult for us just now than the Corona virus. This pandemic confronts us all in many ways and on many levels - as a society, a nation, a global community.

What does the Church, what do we as a Christian community in Armadale, have to offer into the wider community at such a time? A story of hope and endurance – not just for ourselves but for all creation: the story of Jesus Christ.

At its heart, Christianity is the story of the redemptive suffering and death of Jesus; suffering that, even in, its awfulness, shows us a way through; suffering that is ultimately and mysteriously hopeful and, even as it is endured, points to, speaks of, the time ahead, the time yet to be. It is a story to make us wonder.

The Christian faith does not, cannot, make everything `all right` but with exacting rigour, can and does work with what is - hopefully, truthfully, courageously, selflessly. Each of us has our part to play in this, you and me both.

Unfortunately, we are unable to conduct formal services or even to make the Church available for any purpose, not even for quiet contemplation.

If you wish to talk in more depth, do ring me, Fiona Winn, on 0403 662 786.

`Lord to whom shall we go? Yours are the words of eternal life.` John 6: 68

Go well in every way.

Fiona
