Hope and grief with hope.

November 6
I had last week off preaching which was good as Denise had appointments with Palliative care and the District Nurse getting pain and wound care sorted out better.The theme of how we grieve in NZ society is constantly present in an older congregation as spouses and friends slip away in death.
The idea I proffered that the bridesmaids didn’t need to go away to get oil because surely it was more important to be there than to have the right stuff (a lit lamp) evoked some curiosity, especially as it is directed to the whole community being called to the Messianic banquet.
Lord, Lord… I do not know you.
