The widows in todays readings are not too different from any number of widows I have met over the years – gracious and generous to a fault.
Contrast many grumpy old widowers who get lost when their partner and companion dies, and who close up shop as it were. Broad generalisations I know but widows always seem to have got it as a class, whereas we men struggle with grace because we think it’s wimpy.
That’s not what I preached on, these are just thoughts as I prepare to post last Sunday’s proclamation.
Today’s interview on National Radio of the Rev Kim Dong-Sung of the WCC by Kim Hill addressed the faith issues around greed which is what the reading from Mark is all about.
When will we get it – really?
