So Passiontide begins. Rather than my own muddled meanderings on the meaning of Christ's Passion, I'm linking to last Sunday's sermon from what, for online purposes, I've previously blogged about as 'Newchurch. ' Here it is, a memorable reflection on the metaphors we use as we grapple with the meaning of the mystery that lies at the heart of our Christian faith: Why did Jesus go to these lengths? What was the point of his sufferings? What was the point of his death?
It's when I hear teaching like this that I realise again that Eeyore though I might be at times, I'm so fortunate to have found a church now where different viewpoints are accepted, questions are asked and we're encouraged to expand our understanding of God beyond the human constructs we place on him. As it says in the closing paragraph:
Amen to that!
