From Father Nev

8-7-18 – Heart of Man: Our Brokenness is a bridge. Not a barrier.

On Thursday evening I was invited to a movie promo called the Heart of Man. It was quite a confronting film with plenty of imagery and symbolism for males to deepen their understanding about themselves and God. It was a modern and cinematic retelling of the story of the Prodigal Son. It incorporated several different testimonies illustrating a range of situations where there was significant guilt and shame including sexual abuse, adultery and pornography. In addition the central characters were God, the Prodigal, the temptress and the Devil himself. All this stories are carefully woven together to create a heart rendering roller coaster ride. The film ended with a Q&A with the director, the testifiers and the actors. One amazing quote was ”Your deep shame and guilt are not meant for you to fix, just leave that to God.” As humans we have a habit of taking matters into our own hands and for some of us we are prone to portraying a particular image of ourselves to the world and to others. For some of us, the pain is so immense that we are unaware of God or anyone around us. In the interplay between God and the prodigal it starts well with the young man happily playing his violin in a duet with the Father. As he gets a bit older, he is drawn by his sexuality and allows himself to be seduced by a woman. God continues to play the violin but to no avail. The prodigal is drawn by this other tune or idol. So quickly when we choose to not be in sync with God, can our lives plunge into despair and anarchy. The director uses the image of a cave as a place where the prodigal is enslaved by his own fears. The fear of holding secrets!! Secrets such as being abused by family members, having affair after affair and not knowing why and chasing things are not real. All of these fears are part of our brokenness. This is what we like to hide from those we love and our loving God. Many of us think that God will spurn us and look at us in disgust. This is a lie that is sown into us that we are unworthy. God though every time we screw up or when we are encaged by something looks upon us lovingly. He just wants us to come to him, curl up in his arms and to play the song that is unique to God and yourself. This week ask yourself, are their fears or secrets that I still harbour? Am I ready to use my brokenness as an opportunity to be redeemed by God?

Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
