CIRMC Weekly Update December 20, 2018

Thursday Dec 20, 2018
 
The reading from the Gospel of Luke this Sunday brings the Magnificat to our attention. Luke’s Gospel, in general, underscores God’s preferential care towards the humble, the hungry, and the deprived, and God’s verdict upon the self-indulgent. Mary’s Song invites us to reflect on the surprising inversion in God’s actions; ‘He has brought down the powerful from their thrones and lifted up the lowly’, He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty’.

 ‘Joy to the World, the Lord has come’ written by Isaac Watts (16741748) is still one of the most popular Christmas Carols. Originally penned as a poem, based on Psalm 98, it was included in Watt’s work entitled ‘The Psalms of David, Imitated in the New Testament’. The Carol speaks to the Second Coming of the Messiah and was initially entitled ‘The Messiah’s Coming and Kingdom’. For Watts, the Psalms find their fulfillment in the New Testament.

UCJCI Child Care and Protection Policy -17  persons complete training in CIRMC

At the 2015 Synod of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, a Resolution was passed to develop a Child Care and Protection Policy for the whole church.  The policy not only protects our children but also protects our leaders, most of whom are volunteers. For the United Church, this is more than just writing a statement or providing guidelines, this is a powerful commitment – a totally new strategy of engagement – a church that values its children and young people above rubies. Every child matters!
