2022

Third Quarter 2022 (July – September)

Second Quarter 2022 (April – June)

Our second quarter Pew Reflections begin with a reflection on the Gospel Reading for the Fifth Sunday in Lent. As Judas complains about the cost of the ointment Mary is spreading over Jesus’ feet, we are invited to examine areas in our own lives where we ignore our own failings as we complain about the faults of others.

First Quarter 2022 (January – March)

Welcome to the first set of ABM’s Pew Reflections for 2022.

In his Epistle to the Romans (15.4), St Paul writes, ‘Whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope’.

As you engage with the Scriptures, may the Word of God awaken and strengthen your hope. May it be a lantern to your feet and a light to your path (Psalm 119.105).

In Christ,
