Holy Week 2013 Day 3

Just setting off to Wellington Church to take my turn at leading people in worship as we follow the story of the last week of the life of Jesus on earth - as told by John's Gospel.


What a strange story it is! And I,  as the song says, am a believer. Hmmm ...
What happens in a culture when metaphors die?
Can they still speak to us?
Do we seek or invent new ones?
Do they (re)appear of their own volition?
Do we wrestle, work and pray for their resurrection? Hmmm ...

'Unless a metaphor die, ....' Hmmm ...again.

Tonight, the small matter of Judas Iscariot.

Honest,grown-up, deep engagement with what damages and ultimately with what saves us...and a wonderful hymn by Peter Abelard.
Thank-you Roy and Alex
