Celebrating the Spirit of Jubilee
The Old Testament tradition of “Jubilee” wisdom does not age or expire. And so it is with the ancient idea of “Jubilee,” the year of the Lord’s favor. Each Jubilee year, people across and around the globe unite in heart, mind and spirit, to recall and be re-inspired by the ancient Old Testament idea of “Jubilee,” a time when debts were cancelled , slaves were freed, and land was redistributed.
As a congregation, a social justice group, a school group, a family or even as an individual, Jubilee is an opportunity to set aside time to reflect on our role in building a fair, compassionate and environmentally sustainable society. (Excerpted from “Jubilee Australia”).
Please join us in prayer as we reflect on the many dimensions of this Holy Year of Mercy.
