“My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
The Cup of Christ
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you."
The Cup of Community
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in."
The Cup of Care
This first cup is the cup of Christ’s life, suffering and death. In this cup we find life and the Kingdom of God made accessible to us. This cup speaks of the centrality of Jesus Christ and how in his story all human stories find their fullest meaning.
Jesus offered his disciples a cup and told them to drink it in memory of him. This cup of remembrance is also the cup of community, of our life shared together in him.
Through the means given to us by Father, Son and Spirit we do our best to care for the vulnerable, provide for those in need and empower those who are overlooked and marginalised.
