A Theology of Creation

“Why have you done this terrible thing?  Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground, like a voice calling for justice.   You are placed under a curse and can no longer farm the soil.  The soil has soaked up your brother’s blood as if it had opened its mouth to receive it when you killed him.  If you try to grow crops, the soil will not produce anything; you will be a homeless wanderer on earth” – Gen.4:10-12

A message for OFWs

“Don’t imagine that you are safer than any other Jew just because you are in the royal palace. If you keep quiet at a time like this, help will come from heaven to the Jews, and they will be saved, but you will die and your father’s family will come to an end. Yet who knows—maybe it was for a time like this that you were made queen!” -Esther 4:13-14

A theology of witnessing

“When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8

WEEKLY REFLECTION | God of freedom

“I have seen how cruelly my people are being treated in Egypt; I have heard them cry out to be rescued from their slave drivers.  I know their sufferings, and so I have come down to rescue them from the Egyptians and to bring them out of Egypt to a spacious land…” – Exodus 3:7-8

WEEKLY REFLECTIONS | A theology of work

“You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me…In six days I, the LORD made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested.” – Exodus 20:9-11
