What is the Father doing?

The subject of this week’s readings at the midweek prayer meeting on Wednesday, January 4th, is “What is the Father doing?”

In John 5, the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, Jesus offers this explanation of his healing works.  “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. The Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing; and he will show him greater works than these, so that you will be astonished.”

What is the Father doing?  How can we make sure we are seeing what He is showing us?  Why is it important to see what the Father is doing? We’ll be exploring these questions in this week’s readings. The meeting begins at 6 pm and everyone is invited.
