Seeking and Sharing the Fullness of Life

Looking for good news during a pandemic

A reflective sermon on Isaiah 40:21-31; Psalm 147; 1 Corinthians 9:16-23 & Mark 1:29-39
by the Revd Dr Francesca D Nuzzolese
(Pastoral Theologian, Psychotherapist, Trauma Care Consultant)

A video recording of the whole service, including this sermon, is available here.



  1. Thanks Francesca for speaking to us out of a dark time. One thing I noticed while you were speaking with the snow storm in the background, was the birds that periodically appeared out of the white. For me, birds are encouraging at any time, especially perhaps when other things are not making much sense. Blessings.

  2. Thanks Francesca for your honesty. I found this to be a very reflective and touching sermon. It was very different from the many exhortatory sermons that we hear in churches, and for that reason more memorable.
    Blessings on yourself and your ministry at this time.

  3. This was a beautiful sermon. Francesca has a special ability to be able to name the darkness we are feeling, to really inhabit it with us, and then to find words the illumine a pathway towards hope. Thank you so much, Francesca.
