CURRENT DISCUSSION SHEET:
1. Bridging the Age Divide With Joy - October 2019
Global family, Identity, Hope; faith; joy
Penelope's sharing on her attendance at a Marist Laity conference in Ireland, encourages and inspires, as we hear how her Marist identity and belonging enhanced her experience. And although there may be uncertainty and/or a period of upheaval in the church, there is also great hope. (MM)

2. The Loneliness of Mary - September 2019
Faith, Women, Prayer; Hope
Our hearts are always longing for the One wo can fill us - when we experience loneliness we can look to the example of Mary who, despite all difficulties, keeps hold of God's hand. The exultant song "Magnificat," shows she was confident God was with her and her people. (MM)

3. Jean Vanier - Arms Wide Open - August 2019
Community, Virtues, Feeding the hungry
Jean Vanier - founder of the L'Arche communities, was a spiritual giant who longed to help people know and live with Jesus. This month we read how he did this - through encounters with the poorest and weakest in society, particularly those with mental illness. (MM)

4. Lectio Divina - Bible Month - July 2019
The Bible, Holy Spirit, Reading; Meditation; Prayer; Contemplation
The Church has a long spiritual practice of reading Scripture slowly in a way that allows us to listen to a word or phrase that seems to ‘speak’. It is a personal way of listening to the Holy Spirit, and becoming spiritually attentive to the Word touching us inwardly. (MM)

5. Travelling Together - June 2019
Community, Faith, Eucharist, Eternal mystery
Over our lifetime we are invited to keep growing into the fullness of 3-fold conversion - moral, intellectual and heart. On that journey, we are not meant to be alone. There is always more to grow into and we need to keep moving forward together. (MM)

6. Feasting in God's Delight - May 2019
Gifts, God's pleasure
God is extravagant, lavish and his generosity is overflowing. He longs to give pleasure joy, comfort and delight to his people in super-abundance. (MM)

7. Being Made Welcome - April 2019
Virtues, Christian Life, Community
When we are made welcome, we feel blessed and honoured. It is important that we are welcoming to visitors and to those in our church communities, without expecting to be 'repaid' (MM)

8. St Joseph - March 2019
Saints, family, Faith, hope, love
St Joseph left a legacy to all. Inspirational in his role as father to Jesus and protector of the Holy Family, we can learn a great deal from his humility, kindness and great faith. (MM)

9. Smallness - February 2019
Christian Life, outreach; personal faith development
Tiny irritations in life - like little foxes - can sometimes build up and destroy our composure. With God's grace, we can become attuned to hurting humanity, and how we can provide a word or a touch to those who need our understanding. (MM)

10. Advent - Watching; Waiting; Longing - December 2018
Advent, Hope
Our deepest desire, planted within us, is our Advent desire for Christ.
