The story of Esther has been a long-time favourite in our home – especially for Dot – in the form of the movie “One night with the king”. Key of course to the story are the words of Mordecai to Esther, ‘Maybe you were called for such a time as this …’ The continual challenge of the relevance of our faith and life to the context in which we live. It’s time to show up!

During the past three months, what have you most missed or most valued?
For Lauren it has been relationships.”I have loved being at home with my loved ones but also deeply missed connecting with the people I am not locked down with”. As we reflect on what 2020 is teaching us and what needs to change to rebuild our lives differently, let us turn to Jesus to learn what it means to have deep and meaningful relationships with God, ourselves, our loved ones, and those beyond our immediate social circles.
We will consider how to turn from: Rules to Relationships; Conviction to Confession; Fighting to Forgiveness
