The Beatitudes

Last week we had a quick look at the Beatitudes. They are found at the beginning of chapter 5 in Matthew’s Gospel and is a set of statements or sayings that start the sermon on the mount (Matthew puts a lot of Jesus’ teaching into one big sermon on a mountain).

We wondered if these poetic statements were like a protest, a shout to the world that this is what it could be like. We wondered if, we were going to send a message to the world, what would we put on our placards so that others would know what we stood for – so we did just that! we made placards that spoke of the things we want to see in the world.

Our own little protest …

…. the beginning of out sermon, teaching, the things we think that Jesus is saying to the world today.
