Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting Church

Welcome to this Sunday gathering at Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting church on Sunday 20th of February 2022. Have you ever experienced that you feel very difficult to forgive/love someone or feel guilty for not being able to forgive/love someone?  Today’s gospel reading from Luke 6:27-38, Jesus makes a controversial claim about treating those who believe and act differently: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” What Jesus commands us is to turn the other cheek, to go the extra mile, to give away your underwear, and to have sympathy for those who beg and borrow… Are you willing to do that in order to live as disciples of Jesus?
