Theme: Do you want a better Way of life for yourself and
others? It is possible at any stage or age; its never too late, if we
open to Jesus’ voice speaking to us either directly as an inner voice or in
encounter with others; and if we are open to what He calls us to do. Today we
see how three people respond to Jesus’ Spirit calling us to courageously
open up to others who are different or challenging- welcoming, encouraging, sharing and speaking up for them.

KEY TEXT: Saul was still breathing out murderous threats
against the Lord’s disciples… so that if he found any there who belonged to the
Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners. But the Lord
said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to
the Gentiles … Ananias went and placing his hands on Saul, said, “Brother
Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road ..has sent me so that you
may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” [Acts 9 v 1,15-17]
