LIFE AFTER DEATH - STEPHEN TRAVERS AND ALAN McBRIDE AT 4 CORNERS FESTIVAL 2018
"GREENBELT WEDNESDAY" AT 4 CORNERS FESTIVAL 2018

TOMORROW IN FITZROY - 28.1.18

Fitzroy Church Weird Light

"Strangled by confusion, my mind is in decay
Can't picture tomorrow, can't remember yesterday
Send out for the Black & Decker and the psychiatric couch
Open up the window, let the bad air out"

I was drawn to this Bruce Cockburn song as I prepared the sermon for tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy. As we set ourselves up for a Lent series in the Gospel According To Mark we are in the Lectionary Reading in Mark 1 where a demon cries out to Jesus as he teaches in the synagogue. Cockburn's Bad Air is wanting out! We will look at the epiphany and apocalypse of Jesus arrival and how Mark lays out his authority and humanity's need to take Jesus seriously. The Bad Air certainly takes him seriously. What Bad Air lurks in our minds... in our parliament... and how will Jesus deal with it?!

"Traitors in high places take my money, tell me lies
Take a walk past Parliament, it smells like something died
They ask for trust, but somehow I've got serious doubts
Open up the window, let the bad air out"

Please note that there will be NO event in Fitzroy in the evening as we will all be at Stormont Presbyterian Church for the ordination of Brent Van Der Linde into Royal Navy Chaplaincy at 6pm
