Gate Pa – Year B  33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time,

Psalm                          1 Samuel 2:1-10  (Hannah’s Prayer)
First Reading:                         1 Samuel 1:4-20
Second Reading:         Hebrews 10:11-14, 19-25     
Gospel:                                    Mark 13:1-8
What I want to say:
I want to explore how are faith gets colonised by large stones – large stone like making our churches great again, or making America great again, or making Britain great? What captures our imagination? I wonder what Mark’s Jesus is inviting us to let go of, and what might shape our imagination as we enter into another advent?
What I want to happen:
I want people to reflect on that they give their allegiances to, and what they might be invited to let go of?
