Title Podcast#:0351 Jesus Knocks At My Door | 29/08/2020

“Jesus knocks at my door – He surely finds me?”. A podcast that challenges us in our hearts and minds, that, God is the one that finds us, not we find God. This Podcast commences with a Gospel on Mark 13:3-37, about the rapture and end of the world. On ‘Woman of Faith’ is produced by Carol Akladious, and she will delight us with the story of St Pelagia. Fr Kyrillos Farag will speak to us on “Jesus, come into my heart”, and this expression is easy, you need to say it with your heart and not with lip service. Did you know that we were carved in the hands of God – God knew us before we were conceived in the womb of our mothers. George Eskander will give a reflection on ‘I carved you in my hands’. We all have a visit by Jesus when He will knock at our door of our hearts. Karin will share with us a reflection on “Jesus knocks at my door – He surely finds me?”. Once Jesus finds me, He looks after me and pastorally and spiritually He looks after me. Here, Mark will leads us on “God cares for me”. Rebecca Kyracious propose three questions on “Seeking God”. The work of the Holy Spirit is a gift of God to us because of God’s love to us. Florence reflects for us on “the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives”. “Following God’s will” is such an important topic led by Antony Mansour for us to consider. Which came first, the egg or the chicken? Well, no different with the same question addressed by Fr David ElMasri on, “The Apostolic fathers view on who found – Man finds God or God finds men”? David & Merna will give us a short reflection on why “God loves me”. Yes, I am like a lost sheep – or better still the prodigal son, and yes, Fr Moses Ayad, will tell us that “Jesus went looking for me” – and he caught me in the fish’s net. In memory of the late Very Rev Fr Makarious Wahab who passed away on Thursday 27 August 2020, a short clip taken from Facebook from a recording he did at a youth group meeting by Zoom on, “try me’. This recording was from 28 March 2020. May God repose his soul. May he Rest In Peace. Condolence is extended to his wife, Tasoni Christine and to his precious family that he left behind and to the Coptic Diocese of Melbourne. The Bible Reflection is on Psalm 119:113- 120. Fr Joshua Tadros reflects to us on, “God calls me as He did with Abraham”. Finally, the Desert Fathers is narrated by Carol Akladious on the journey of St. Diadochos of Photiki, who lived in the Fifth Century. It is read from the Philokalia. Lastly, the “Did you know”.
