Whilst we are still in a period of thinking about the birth of Jesus, there is also time to think about redemption – and that it’s available to all (and often through the ordinary times of life, which are then made extraordinary).
Redemption, however, is not painless:
The Christian gospel is not magic, wishing away all ills. It is given in incarnation, the inseparable fusing together of the human and divine, and grows at the same pace as all human life – slowly.
A lifelong journey of transformation… individually, and in community.
Talking of journeys – I’m heading down South today, and off to Marrakech on Monday, so the remainder of entries are pre-written!
