                I doubt very much if Tennyson had recently read the prophecies of Ezekiel when he proclaimed his infamous words of encouragement in the midst of loss—“Tis better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.”

          The reason I say that is that Ezekiel had the demanding job...

Several events of recent weeks which haunt us all led me to give thought to how Jesus has responded to questions about evil and suffering in the world.  The mysterious disappearance of the Malaysian airliner, on what appeared to be a routine flight, is an event likely to cause us all heartache and grief.   It is hard not to picture ourselves possibly being on such a flight....

Thin and Thick...

Thin and Thick...

There are places on earth which are considered to be sites of particular holiness, places where God seems more present than usual, where heaven seems to meet earth and the divine is made manifest to humans.  Each religion claims its territory:  the Hindus bathe in the Ganges; the Buddhists sit near the Bodhi tree in Bodgya where Gautama was enlightened.  Jews find the mountain...

A Third Way

A Third Way

The passages we have just heard from the gospel of Matthew are some of the most challenging in the New Testament.  Love your enemy, turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, give your inner garment as well as your cloak.  Challenging because we know, immediately,  that they go against all our basic instincts. Challenging also because we know that we do not live up to them. As...
