Words to Live by
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ
has forgiven you.
( Eph 4:32)
Born to Eternal Life
Reg Naidoo
Kindness: wanting the good of others. It means ‘making ourselves one’ with
them, approaching them being completely empty of ourselves, of our own interests, our
own ideas, of the many preconceptions that cloud our vision, to take on ourselves their
burdens, their needs, their sufferings, and to share in their joys.
Our prayers are with Stanley,
Bernanette & all the Naidoo & Chinia
It means entering into the hearts of the people we meet in order to understand
their mindset, their culture, their traditions, so as to make them, in a certain sense, our
own, and really understand what they need and be able to discern those values God has
planted in the heart of every person. In a word: kindness means to live for whoever is
near us.
Tender-heartedness: welcoming others as they are, not as we would like them to
be, with a different character, with our political views or our religious convictions, and
without those faults and habits that annoy us so much. No, we need to expand our
hearts and make them able to welcome everyone, with their differences, their shortcomings and troubles.
Saturday Nov 30th, 7.30 -10.00am
Weeding, pruning and general tidy up in
preparation for Christmas.
Please bring garden gloves, tools and
