Welcome to Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting online church on the twenty third Sunday after Pentecost, 8th November 2020.  Today’s gospel reading, Matthew 25:1-13, talks about some smart bridesmaids and some not-so-smart bridesmaids.  The smart ones had enough extra oil to keep their lamps burning while the not-so-smart ones didn’t bring extra oil at all. They were watching and waiting for bridegroom in coming to the wedding.  When the time came, the foolish were off trying to get more oil for their lamps while the wise were able to greet the bridegroom and were welcomed into the wedding.  Jesus then warns the disciples to keep awake, for they know not the day or the hour.
