Tuesday July 29th – prayer and talk

hello,

we met an evening in June with prayer and talk about a caritative initiative, building friendship with other people. We presented different alternatives, talked about them and prayed. We talked about participating in the soup kitchen on Saturdays, welcoming refugee youth in the parish, starting a visiting group at a home for refugee children or at Råby ungdomshem (a place for  young people taken care by the society), visting prisoners at Malmö prison, visiting a home for elderly people.
It should be a thing where people engage on regular basis so that something could happen between people. It´s not about “helping” but as much seeing oour own need of ” being helped” by others.

Spend some time and pray on this theme the coming week.

Join on Tuesday July 29th at 19.30 for another occasion to discern next step -also you who are not yet engaged.

yours br Björn

News Summer

Early this morning I woke up without any thoughts in my head. The window was open, Lund was all calm, it was just the sound of the wind in the trees and the birds. The sounds of silence so to say. It was a great joy, the adventure of creation in it´s simplicity.
In a gospel story Matthew, a not very perfect man sits outside his house and a man passes by and asks him to follow him. And he does. Later he becomes the writer of that gospel, about that man he suddenly follows, Jesus.
How is he able to just follow? He takes a chance!  He is someone thinking a lot of money and about how to get more – and he is fed up with it, really fed up. This makes him sufficiantly open. There must be more in life than gathering things.
He is prepared to leave. The man passing has something special. A special presence, a special radiance. His body is radiant, his eyes. This presence is love and it is attractive and beautiful.
So Matthew is seduced. To be seduced, find attraction and beauty in this way is much more than passion or thrills. It´s the basic thing of life itself.
Why not this summer put a way some unnecessary things (“what is not necessary is sin”…someone radically said) and get attracted like him. Put away some thrills, some mobiles and happenings? it is worth a try, it really is.
We started our prayer and talk  about fiendship with others. This summer, if in Lund, visit the soup kitchen Saturdays at St Knuts torg at about 6 pm and talk to people there. Sit down on the street with one of the beggers and share a moment. And on Tuesday July 29th we´ll have another meeting to see what we can do.
Football was a nice evening where lots of people showed up and had some fun together – to enjoy each other is really a good thing.
At the end of August we start more regular meetings again. Welcoming of foreign students will take place on Monday August 25th at Café Aten at AF from 10-16, i hope we can have a group there at that occasion.

Dear all,

Welcome to barbecue at my place at Ulrikedalsvägen 30A on Tuesday the 8th of June! I will provide potatoes, salad and something to drink (and plates etc of course). Bring what you want to barbecue! We meet at my place at 19. Call me when you are there. If you don’t have my number, e-mail me at evelina.kulcinskaja at hotmail.com and I will give it to you. In case of bad weather we will be indoors. Afterwards we can play volleyboll or bordgames if you want to.
