OK, Jim. Well, I spent yesterday, and will spend much of today, gardening - taming a wild hedge, pruning, weeding, planting, encouraging new life, attending to worms and various bugs, etc. It seems to me that I undertake such tasks in a world whose headlines are as they are precisely because I believe in the resurrection. You can tell which folk don't believe in the resurrection by looking at their gardens.


Thank you for this; I am going to take the thoughts for Sunday's sermon - I may use some of the images,well credited of course.

Welcome to use this Ruth, ignoring a couple of typos I've since noticed! This post started off, I was only intending to quote Radcliffe - I assume you've read some of him? But it took off - resurrection as the cross flowering touches into secret places where hope grows and we see the world not only for what it is, but for what it's worth, to God. Take care and build in some resurrection experiences - last night coming home from Inverurie I listened to Beethoven's 7th, the finale blasting away, the intoxicated music that in its day raised eyebrows, and always raises me!
