Sunday Link

connecting faith

Sunday Link is specially produced for Anglican Christians, and particularly designed to emphasise the “link” between our Christian faith and everyday life. There is an original reflection each week on one of the Sunday readings, which always aims to reveal something to us about our lives as Christians. This is coupled with an original prayer for you to pray on your own or with others. We also provide articles on various aspects of Christian life.


Current themes


Reflections on our month’s readings - March

Patsy McGregor continues our reflections on the 4 March sharing how as she heard the Ten Commandments this Lenten season she convicted to keep the Sabbath. The message of Psalm 19 further convinced her to use this time to meditate on the word of God. This week Patsy realises it’s not quite so easy to keep the world out on the Sabbath or at any other time in fact. She reflects on materialism and how anything that we buy is merely a short-lived substitute for the good life we gain through Christ. As we come closer to Easter on the 5th Sunday of Lent, Patsy reminds us that Jesus’ sacrifice was an exhibition of the most selfless obedience. She asks how can we exercise obedience in our daily lives. This Palm Sunday we are guided to look at Jesus’ triumphant and joyful procession into Jerusalem. How the crowds must have felt welcoming this man who fulfilled the Old Testament and in contrast how Jesus must have felt riding knowing the significance of this journey.

Stations of the cross

We continue with Fr Denis McBride’s reflections on the Stations of the Cross. This month focuses on the gentle devotion of Veronica, the obedience and strength of Jesus as he falls the second time, the women who refuse to desert Jesus in his suffering and how as the Messiah dies on the cross he fulfils the prophecy. Fr Denis’ thought-provoking words might just help you to understand the gift of Christ anew in time for Easter this year.

Lent lunch

Ricarda Witcombe continues her series on Lent lunches. Seeing how we often take for granted the simple things – soup, bread, water – she argues we should learn to appreciate them as they can come to represent so much more than at first glance.


Palm Sunday

Lisa Tulfer explores some of the practices we associate with Palm Sunday and also explains some less well-known rituals from the sixteenth century.
