Looting From Friends

Stina shares her new year’s resolution for 2023 of finally reading her book list, and how she implemented the acronym SMART to make her resolution a reality.

S04 Ep20 – Happy New Year & Word of the Year

In our final episode of the year, Stina and Fr Byrnes conclude this season and 2023 with their individual ‘word of the year’, how it affected them, how it evolved and transformed, and how it was an experience of walking alongside the word and growing with grace from God.

S04 Ep19 – Merry Christmas

Stina and Fr Sean Byrnes take this time before Christmas to help us prepare for the 4 Sunday of Advent and Christmas Day back to back. They explore the idea the Christ child juxtaposed with his Crucifixion, the beginning and end of Christ’s life, the power of Christ overcoming the darkness, and then shine a light on how we can manage this season, keeping the Christmas Grinch at bay as we navigate the week ahead.

His Manger, My Heart – Together Paper

Emily Shaw treats us to the
idea of ‘firsts’ this Christmas – first Christmas as a
family, first Christmas with empty chairs round the
table, firsts for joy and firsts for great sorrows. Emily
writes how from the process of life, our hearts may
require healing, and how they are like mangers,
imperfect, sometimes ragged, but having the capacity
to allow Christ to rest in them, regardless of the type of
Christmas experience we have.

S04 Ep18 – ‘Rejoice’- Advent Episode 3

Part 3 of our Advent series has us talking about joy and rejoicing taken from Philippians 4:4. Padre and Stina discuss the necessity of rooting and cultivating one’s joy in the depth of Christ Jesus during Advent, and not being persuaded or hoping to find one’s true Christmas joy in the materialism of the season, nor even the ‘perfect’ Christmas dinner.

S04 Ep16 – Preparing the Way – Advent Pt 1

This episode is the first of our 4-part advent series – preparing a way for the Lord. We focus on the scripture passages of Matthew 3:3 and 3:11, and the purpose of John the Baptist and the preparation he undertook for his mission. We hope this series provides inspiration and motivation for your time of preparation this Advent.
