Bono put the artistic reason for his Christianity so beautifully: "the poetic appropriateness of that unspeakable Power manifesting itself as a baby born on straw poverty." In this world, power is misunderstood, and inevitably intertwined with violence and control. The prophets dreamed of a different way -- a different way that came to life on Christmas Eve.

Angels are out of fashion in our scientific, rational thinking. They are nonetheless real, though (as always) only occasionally experienced. They are not cute, but formidable warriors; and they are not all good. What God's angels do is to praise, preach, and protect. [Thomas Place - Pentecost 15]

Death, it turns out, is not the worst thing that can happen to us. With the resurrection of Lazarus, Jesus points to his own resurrection. Both are proof that God is master of a life that continues beyond the moment we call death. But if Jesus hung back for four days so that God's glory might be evident, if he knew his friend would shortly walk out of hte grave… why then did he weep? Today's insights from guest preacher Pastor Mark Tuffin. [ Organ/Choir - Lent 5 ]
