November 6 – Matthew 25:1-13

This was a family service so we took a break from James and focussed on the lectionary gospel for today which was the story of the wise and foolish bridesmaids.

Elizabeth Wild who is training for ordination with us, did the talk which you can hear here Matthew 25_1-13

Here are some questions for you to consider:

  • How do you light up the world?
  • What helps you to shine?
  • What gifts have you got to bring to God?
  • What gifts can you give to bring life to others?
Reflect on what it means if we put God into different parts of the story – as the bridegroom, in the light, as the oil, with the bridesmaids who were shut out of the party, with the well prepared bridesmaids, as the party, as the door to the party, in the gifts given, as the village community, with the unseen bride.
