‘Life Frame” is the over-arching theme we are using for the month of January here in St Andrew’s Bo’ness. It’s an invitation to look at the experiences in our lives that we feel are important and begin to evaluate the place and position that we give to wealth and material possessions.
For some life frame is dominated by sport and high risk pursuits. For others there may be a longing for a more quiet and less stressful existence. Over the next three months we will use this theme to explore the significance of the temptations of Jesus Christ in the Wilderness. We aim to take one temptation each month and begin to explore how it might speak to our lives in the 21st Century.
In Mathew’s Gospel we’re told that the essence of the first temptation was to “turn stones into bread” in other words, Jesus was tempted to concentrate on his immediate physical needs rather than reflect on the significance of a wider and deeper human need.
Human nature hasn’t changed much today we face the same temptation to satisfy the physical needs of self and family and ignore the fact that we are more than body and soul we are spiritual beings. The mystery of our consciousness invites us to think more about who we really are. Check out www.sanctuaryfirst.org.uk for daily reflections on our monthly theme.
