Examin Sunday 21 November 2015

St Augustine described the Church as a hospital for sinners. Sadly, many refuse to believe they are in need of the treatment she offers; they refuse to see themselves as sinners. And yet we all are, for, as it is written 'all are sinners, and all have fallen short of God's Glory' (Romans 3.23). Yet Christ commanded us 'to to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect' (Matthew 5.48). He provided us with help in obeying that command in the Church he founded. The first step towards getting that help is in accepting that we need it.
