South Sydney Uniting Church is ecumenical (e.g. supporting the National and World Council of Churches) and inclusive,
affirming the gifts of people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations and identities. We seek peace with justice,
and the integrity of creation.
We celebrate a service of Word and Sacrament (Eucharist) each Sunday at 10am.

"We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land: the Gadigal people of the Eora nation."

Thanksgiving for Creation
Commemoration of Sts Francis
and Clare
South Sydney Uniting Church
October 4, 2015

Psalm 148; Galatians 6:14-18; Matthew 11:25-30

‘A sense of loyalty’

“[Francis] was above all things a great giver; and he cared chiefly for the best kind of giving which is called thanksgiving ... He knew that the praise of God stands on its strongest ground when it stands on nothing. He knew that we can best measure the towering miracle of the mere fact of existence if we realise that but for some strange mercy we should not even exist” (Saint Francis of Assisi, G.K. Chesterton).

“Clare founded the Order of Poor Ladies (Poor Clares) at San Damiano, and led it for 40 years. Everywhere the Franciscans established themselves throughout Europe, there also went the Poor Clares, depending solely on alms, forced to have complete faith on God to provide through people; this lack of land-based revenues was a new idea at the time” (http://catholicsaints.info/saint-clare-of-assisi).

God be with you
